There are six primary factors that must be addressed when defining conditions for thermal comfort. This handbook chapter provides additional information for estimating and measuring activity levels. Aviation, Space and Environmental Medicine Retrieved from ” https: Cyclic variations refer to those situations where the ashraae temperature repeatedly rises and falls, and the period of these variations is not greater than 15 minutes.

In these situations, the requirements of Section 5.

Thermal comfort – compliance

Extending the summer comfort envelope with ceiling fans in hot, arid climates. Tables B1 and B2 are for a standing person. This site requires a newer version to work correctly. No heating system is in operation; b Metabolic rates ranging from 1. Please list your attachments here: Energy and Buildings 8: It is spatially and temporally averaged in the same manner as air temperature.

This table can be used together with the previous one, so that one can add or subtract the clothing ensemble from the clo value of each garment.

The combinations of air speed and temperature defined by the lines in this figure result in the same heat loss from the skin. Perception of draught in ventilated spaces. Every effort is made to balance the concerned interests on all Project Committees. These levels are ashrrae.

This recognizes the impracticality of providing an HVAC system that can meet all loads under all weather or operating conditions encountered in its lifetime.

If there are multiple such locations, the measurement 5-2007 be performed at a representative location. The effects of ambient temperature swings on comfort, performance and behavior. No, the project team must not exclude th The allowable operative temperature limits in Figure 5. The limitations of the system to control the environment of the zone s should be stated whether based on temperature, humidity, ventilation, time of week, time of day, or seasonal criteria.


When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate. The vertical radiant asymmetry is with plane radiant temperatures in the upward and downward direction.

The criteria in this section are based on people wearing lightweight indoor shoes. In buildings, it may be appropriate to measure the clothing and activity levels of the occupants. All of the building systems must be designed to maintain the occupied spaces at the indoor conditions specified by one of the described evaluation methods at design conditions. Significant structural and decor items should be shown and identified if they affect indoor comfort.

Asheae 24 November The requirements in this section are based on sensitivity to ashrwe in the head region with airflow from behind and may be conservative for some locations on the body and for some directions of airflow.

Survey of subjective responses to the thermal environment in offices.

The activity and clothing of the occupants must be considered in applying this standard. The system shall have controls that enable it to meet comfort requirements at less than full system capacity. Typical examples might be near windows, diffuser ashrea, corners, and entries. Outdoor temperature design conditions Outdoor humidity design conditions Clothing seasonal Activity expected 7.

For the purposes of Section 5, mean radiant temperature is also a time-averaged value. This signifies the concurrence of more than a simple majority, but not necessarily unanimity.

Absolute humidity need be determined at only one location within the occupied zone in each occupied room or HVAC-controlled zone, provided it can be demonstrated that there is no reason to expect large humidity variations within that space. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.


The comfort criteria definition shall include, but not be limited to, the following: These values are valid for an average adult with surface skin area of 1.

The body of the standard consists of a foreword describing changes made in the current versioneight sections and two normative appendices:. Occupant acceptability of eight-hour-long temperature ramps in the summer at low and high humidities.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

The influence of clothing and temperature on sedentary comfort. The methodology is based on the SET Standard Effective Temperature model, which provides a way to assign an effective temperature at 55-0207 standard metabolic rate, and clothing insulation values to compare thermal sensations experienced at a range of thermal conditions.

In the standard was updated with more extensive information on measurement protocols and an expanded definitions section. For all activities except sedentary activities, the metabolic rate for a given activity is likely to have a substantial range of variation that depends on the individual performing the task and the circumstances under which the task is performed.

Thermal stratification in the opposite direction is rare, ahsrae perceived more favorably by occupants, and asurae not addressed in this standard. Airflow characteristics in the occupied zone of heated spaces without mechanical ventilation.

Thermal comfort – compliance | U.S. Green Building Council

Equipment Equipment xshrae or taking away from the heat load. Looking for previous revisions of this standard? The use of an asyrae recorder is the preferred method of measurement; however, it is possible to make the measurements required in this section without the use of recording equipment. Our “watch” feature allows you to stay current on all aspects of this specific credit.

No humidity or air speed limits are required when this option is used.
