Heat exchangers between body and environment.


The human body exchanges heat with its environment via radiation, convection, conduction and evaporation. Each of the heat exchange terms in the heat balance equation S = M-E-(+/- W)-C-R has been described in further detail as related to environmental conditions and to the effect of clothing. Such factors as air velocity, mean radiant temperature, water… (More)
