Abstract: This article first used the Stolwijk model to classify the skin on the appearance of the of body human. After that, the heat transfer coefficient is used to do some calculations of the skin temperature in the shower state of the appearance of human, and the average skin temperature of the human body surface is obtained. The RMSE is used at this time to compare the calculated temperature with the experimental temperature. Analyzing whether the human body shower model and the human body heat balance equation are suitable in this case. Then it will further try to lower the water temperature within a certain range and raise the air ambient temperature. Because the heat capacity of water is greater than the air's concretely, when water and air are heated to the same temperature, the former will consume more energy. Calculating the average skin temperature on the surface of the human body again. The RMSE is used to compare the temperature data before and after the temperature is changed to determine whether the average skin temperature of the appearance of human's body could be predicted with the help of this model and the human body thermal counterpoise equation, and then the thermal comfort of the human body could be judged.
