Abstract

The Purpose of this research is to develop the Korean of human physiology model and thermal comfort assessment. As a first step, we developed models for young men and older men, which calculate the skin temperature of each body segments and predict the thermal sensation of indoor environment. The typical body for 20-30 (younger) and 40-50 (older) years old of Korean men modelled using the data that gathered from 'National Anthropometric Survey of Korea 2010 (Size Korea)'. In order to calculate the surface area and mass of the models, these data used to calculate the surface area of each segment using the formula of Dubois and Dubois's and the mass of each segment using a study of Stolwijk. Using the developed models, the local skin temperature was predicted and compared. In the neutral environment, the body parts in the 4-50s were smaller in surface area and mass than those in the 2-30s, resulting in smaller predicted skin temperatures. In case of the mass of the segment was increased, the change of skin temperature was different according to the part.
