Abstract: In this project, a modelling approach is proposed to evaluate the mean skin temperature of human body during showering. The mean skin temperature is regarded as a significant parameter in human physiological response to indicate our showering thermal sensation and health states. With the implementation of the model, the body mean skin temperature for a given time period can be predicted with the indoor environmental conditions and the occupant's anthropometric data as the input values. Through relating the body mean skin temperature to the total amount of heat flux acting on the occupant's body, possible environmental conditions for thermal comfort can be evaluated. The model can be further applied to evaluate the heat rate per minute of the occupant, in a view to closely monitor the health condition and prevent any extreme thermal condition to occur during showering and bathing.
