- It is always a challenge for us to maintain the temperature throughout the bath water. To solve this disturbing problem, we set up two models to deal with the problem.The first model, called the water adding model based on the uniform temperature distribution, is set mainly about finding out the best strategy with the bather moving regularly. In this part, we only consider heat dissipation around the bathtub and heat exchange with the hot water. Then we figure out a set of optimization equations. And in the end, we also explain the relationship between the factors we consider with our strategy, such as the shape of the bathtub, the size of the use, the intensity of bather's movement and the effect the bubble bath additive makes. After analysis of the model with the bather moving, we present the water adding model based on the uneven temperature distribution, aimed at finding the best strategy with the bather sitting or lying.In all, we get the conclusion that with the hot water going down, a specific bather in a specific bathtub can adopt a specific hot water tap's opening with a specific temperature.
