1 Scientific Research of the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF BIOHEAT TRANSFER PROCESS IN THE HUMAN EYE USING FINITE ELEMENT METHOD Marek Paruch Department for Strength of Materials and Computational Mechanics Silesian University of Technology, Poland, Abstract. In this paper the finite element method is used for the numerical simulation of two dimensional transient bioheat transfer process in the human eye. The human eye is modelling as a composition of several homogeneous regions. On the outer surface the heat radiation is assumed, on the inner surface the Robin condition is accepted. In the final part of the paper the results of computations are shown. 1. Theoretical model of human eye In Figure 1 can be seen that the eye is approximately a spherical organ. The back surface is covered with a thin membrane (retina), that is permeated with blood vessels and is connected with the brain by the optic nerve. Under the retina is a layer called the choroid which serves to nourish it. The anterior transparent surface of the eye is a cornea. The lens lies between the aqueous humour and vitreous humour. The aqueous and vitreous humours are transparent liquids with different concentrations of NaCl [1, 6, 7]. Fig. 1. Model of a human eye

2 200 M. Paruch 2. A mathematical model of a human eye A simplified model of a human eye is presented in Figure 2. Because in reality the retina and the choroid are very thin so they are modelled together with a sclera and optic nerve. Fig. 2. Simplified model of a human eye The temperature distribution in the eye can be described by the equation ( x, t) Te 2 x Ω e : ceρe = λ e Te x, t t ( ) (1) respectively, T e denotes temperature, t is the time and { } where e = 1, 2,..., 7 identifies the sub-domains of human eye, in particular the cornea, aqueous humour, iris, lens, vitreous, sclera and optic nerve, c e [J/(kgK)], ρ e [kg/m 3 ], λ e [W/(mK)] are the specific heat, density and thermal conductivity, x = x, x are the geometrical co-ordinates. Only the cornea is the region in eye which is exposed to the environment. Because the corneal surface temperature is greater than the ambient temperature, heat is extracted away from eye to environment by convection and radiation. Besides convection and radiation, the evaporation of tears increases the cooling rate to the corneal surface [2-4]. Thus on the cornea surface Γ 1 the following boundary condition can be accepted 1 2

3 Numerical simulation of bioheat transfer process in the human eye using finite element method 201 T1 4 4 x Γ1 : λ1 = αa ( T1 Ta ) + εσ( T1 Ta ) + E n (2) where λ 1 is a thermal conductivity of the cornea, T 1 / n is a normal derivative, α a W/(m 2 K) is a heat transfer coefficient between cornea and environment, T a is a temperature of surrounding environment, ε is corneal emissivity, σ is the Stefan- -Boltzmann constant and E is the loss of heat flux due to the evaporation of tears. On the exterior boundary Γ 2 the Robin condition is accepted T2 x Γ2 : λ2 = α b T1 T b n ( ) (3) where λ 2 is a thermal conductivity of the sclera, α b [W/(m 2 K)] is a heat transfer coefficient between sclera and blood vessels and T b is a temperature of blood. In the domain considered the initial temperature is assumed ( ) 0 x Ω : T x, 0 = T (4) e where T 0 is an initial temperature of domain. On the surfaces between sub-domains of the human eye the ideal thermal contact is assumed e II (, ) (, ) (, ) I II ( ) ( ) ( ) I T x t = T x t = T x t x Γc : T x, t T x, t T x, t λ = λ = λ n n n (5) where I and II denote the sub-domains which are in the thermal contact. Finally, the mathematical model of human eye is defined by equation (1) supplemented by conditions (2), (3), (4) and (5). 3. Results of computations The domain of human eye of dimensions m has been considered (c.f. Fig. 2). The computations have been done using the MSC MARC/MENTAT software. The thermophysical parameters of human eye have been collected in Table 1 [1, 5, 8-10]. On the stage of numerical simulation the following parameters have been assumed: blood temperature T b = 37 C, environment temperature T a = 25 C, heat transfer coefficients α b = 65 W/(m 2 K), α a = 10 W/(m 2 K), emissivity of cornea ε = = 0.975, loss of the heat flux E = 40 W/m 2, Stefan-Boltzmann constant σ = = W/(m 2 K 4 ), initial temperature T 0 = 0 C and time step t = 1 s.

Figure 3. Fig. 3. Discretization of a human eye In Figure 4 the temperature distribution in a human eye for time 10, 100 and 2700 s is presented. In Figure 5 the heating curve at the central node of corneal surface (marked in Figure 3) is shown. Summing up, the finite element method allows to obtain a good results of temperature distribution of a human eye.
