Abstract

Simulation of transient bioheat transfer in a two dimensional (2D) human eye model is conducted using a newly developed hybrid fundamental solution-finite element method (HFS-FEM) coupling with the radial basis function (RBF) approximation. Firstly, a time stepping scheme based on the finite difference method (FDM) is used to handle time variable in the transient Pennes bioheat equation. Secondly, the particular solution of the governing equation is approximated by a RBF approach. Then, the homogeneous solution is calculated by means of HFS-FEM. The obtained results are compared with those from ABAQUS and a good agreement between them is observed.
