Abstract
The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory is currently developing a human Intruder Thermal Model (ITM) for predicting the average surface temperature of an intruder. ITM provides steady-state predictions of average surface temperature. It accounts for metabolically generated heat and heat exchange with the environment via conduction, convection, perspiration and respiration. It also accounts for long and short-wave radiation exchanges with the environment, the short-wave component being extremely important to daytime surface temperature predictions. Clothing thermal properties and intruder height and weight are factored into model calculations as well.
