In order to calculate air flow around a passenger by using a numerical simulation of thermal flow, the heat boundary conditions of a human body have been investigated. In this study the passenger's skin temperatures, which are determined by solving the heat balance equation in the human body, have been taken for the heat boundary conditions. The correspondence between calculations and experiments by using a mock-up is qualitatively good. It may be concluded that this method is effective for the prediction of human skin temperatures in nonuniform thermal environments such as the vehicle compartment.
