The aim of this study was to undertake a comprehensive review of the scientific basis of the core elements (animal physiology, engineering, climatology and statistics) that underpin the Hot Stuff model. The report includes the panel’s conclusion that the methodology and assumptions underpinning the Hot Stuff model are sound, reasonable and supported by scientific literature and further recommendations that aim to either engender greater confidence in the technical elements of the model or potentially improve the model’s accuracy in the future.
