Time of Death Calculator

This tool calculates the time of death from temperature of a dead body. The calculator gives a ball park figure of the estimated time of death. The calculations are based on several assumptions including a constant surrounding temperature after the death, the person was healthy (thus 37 °C body temperature at the time of death) and the radiation heat transfer effects are ignored.

Type the required values to get the time of death:

Dead Body Length (m)

Body Diameter (m)

Body Temperature (°C)

Surrounding Temperature (°C)

Time Elasped Since Death (hour)
