Abstract:

In order to evaluate IR images obtained under various thermal environmental conditions, we proposed a human thermal model that can be used for converting IR images into those under a standard condition, The developed model was based on a numerical calculation of bio-heat transfer equations that express heat transfer phenomena within the human body and a mathematical model of the thermoregulation system. A comparison of an IR image which was converted under the standard condition 30C with the original one at 30C indicated that the method using our model was effective to eliminate the influence of the thermal environmental condition.
