Abstract

The parameters which can influence heat transfer of tongue were analyzed in order to reveal the reason why the tongue temperature fields of people with different diseases are distinct. Firstly, the research parameters were determined by experiment results, including the reference humidity of tongue surface, metabolic heat of tongue tissue, the entrance position of root vessel, the diameter of root vessel, the blood flow rate, and the bifurcation exponent of vascular tree. Then the effect of each parameter on the value and the distributing rule of tongue temperature field was analyzed by using a mathematic model of lingual temperature field. Results show that all these parameters have effects on the temperature value of tongue. The reference humidity of tongue surface, the metabolic heat of tongue tissue and the entrance position of root vessel are distinct influences on the distributing rule of tongue temperature.
