Abstract [en]

 It has always been valuable to be able to make early decisions in thermal climate investigations. The development of virtual thermal manikins (VTM) and computer simulated persons (CSP) has become an important complement to traditional evaluation of the thermal environment. This paper describes how to build a VTM within a commercial computational fluid dynamics code (CFD). The methods are based on human experiments and real thermal manikin measurements.

Unfortunately, too few of the theories behind thermal manikin simulations are available in the public domain. Many researchers and companies still use several in-house codes for all or essential parts of their calculations. This paper provides information on how to build the geometry of the manikin in three different commercial CFD codes (CFX (R), Star-CD (R) and Fluent (R)). More information and descriptions are also given on how to connect the VTM to the CFD calculations and make the system interact in real time throughout the full iteration process.
