In the case of higher Pr number, the effect of molecular heat conductivity is relatively small, and the heat flux by turbulent transport becomes increasingly important in the near wall region.
With increasing Pr, the width of the conductive sublayer and the molecular heat flux diminish while the turbulent wall-normal heat flux increases close to the inner and outer surfaces.
The processes of molecular heat transfer, metabolic heat production and heat transfer due to blood flow are modelled as well as the heat losses over the skin by transepidermal water loss, radiation, and convection.
