Abstract:

A model to predict burns to human skin is discussed. The model uses a finite difference heat transfer technique to predict skin temperatures. The wavelength-dependent absorptance of the skin is considered. First and second degree burns are predicted, based on an experimentally-derived time-temperature relationship.
