Abstract:

This report documents a Micro SAINT implementation of a heat-stress model developed by the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine. The model incorporates equations that relate deep-body temperature , heart rate, and sweat loss for clothed soldiers performing physical work in various environments. The Micro SAINT program might be used to help reduce casualties associated with extremes of environmental heat, to calculate appropriate work- rest cycles, and to estimate the drinking-water requirements associated with various levels of sweat loss.
