The change in ambient temperature plays a key role in body thermoregulation. The use of protective layer (clothes) has not only ethical values but also acts as a shield to combat with the severe environmental conditions. A mathematical model on bioheat transfer has been formulated with appropriate diffusing and matching conditions at the dermal layers and the protective layer. The finite difference scheme has been employed to solve the model and the conditions for the thermal stability of tissue temperatures were illustrated using MATLAB and FlexPDE software’s. The results obtained are applicable to a wide range of problems to maintain body core temperature irrespective of the outside temperature.
