Comparison of different bioheat transfer models for assessment of burns injuries

Piotr Łapka , Piotr Furmański , Tomasz Wiśniewski


Two bioheat transfer models i.e.: the classical Pennes model and a more realistic two-equation model which accounted for blood vessel structure in the skin as well as heat transfer in the tissue and arteria blood were coupled with heat and mass transfer model in the protective multilayer garment. The clothing model included conductive-radiative heat transfer with water vapor diffusion in pores and air gaps as well as sorption and desorption of water in fibers. Thermal radiation was modeled rigorously e.g.: both the tissue and fabrics were assumed non-gray, absorbing, emitting and anisotropically scattering. Additionally different refractive indices of fabrics, air and tissue and resulting optical phenomena at separating interfaces were accounted for. Both bioheat models were applied for predicting skin temperature distributions and possibility of burns for different exposition times and radiative heat fluxes incident on external surface of the protective garment. Performed analyses revealed that heat transfer in the skin subjected to high heat flux is independent of the blood vessel structure.
