Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine. Three different classes of environments with respect to thermal comfort are used in Section 5. For the purposes of Section 5, the thermal environment is defined with respect to the occupant. This would require a survey check sheet to be provided by the team responsible for the commissioning of the space. The six primary factors are listed below. Local thermal discomfort caused by vertical temperature differences.

The less extreme conditions include both internal loads and the external environment. Assess the environment for which comfort conditions are going to be verified.

Three classes of acceptable thermal environment for general comfort. A sitting posture results in a decreased thermal insulation due to compression of air layers in the clothing.

If the clothing ensemble in question reasonably matches the clothing ensemble in the table, the indicated value can be used. Except sedentary activities, metabolic rate for all other activities is likely to have range of variation.

The designer may choose in agreement with the builder the thermal comfort class. Both of these sections are clarified and streamlined for use by owners and third-party rating systems. Simulation of heat generated by occupants is recommended.


Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

No humidity or air speed limits are required when this option is used. Simple hand calculations and computer models of buildings and systems are available for this purpose. Indoor thermal comfort can be determined from the responses of ashras occupant survey.

In the standard was updated with more extensive information on measurement protocols and an expanded definitions section. If more than one comfort level is available for any zone sthey should be identified as A, B, C etc.

Occupant Location in Area Place an “X” in the approximate place where you most often work. The methods of Section 5.

Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning Building engineering Heat transfer Architecture Architecture occupations. The amount that the temperature may be increased is shown in Figure 5. In occupied rooms, measurements should be taken at a representative sample of occupant locations spread throughout the occupied zone. These criteria may also be used for people wearing heavier footgear but may be conservative.

Adaptive model is a model that relates indoor design temperatures or acceptable temperature ranges to outdoor meteorological or climatological parameters.

All informative background information has been moved to informative appendices. These are not part of the standard, but provide additional information about terms and methods described within the standard, as well as a bibliography, and a description of the addenda incorporated from the previous version in the current version. It is also specified that the methods provided by this standard are no longer valid when the clothing insulation exceed 1. The criteria for all sources of local thermal discomfort must be met simultaneously at the levels specified for a class for an environment to meet the requirements for that class.


The requirements specified in this section apply ashhrae a lightly clothed person with clothing insulation between 0. Vertical air temperature difference Thermal stratification that results in the air temperature at the head level being warmer than at the ankle level may cause thermal discomfort.

There is a variety of means to determine the insulation provided by clothing. Typically, rest breaks scheduled or hidden or other operational factors get parts, move products, etc. Additionally, all requirements of the applicable section, 5. The required air speed may not be higher than 0. Ashraee answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis.

Discretional differences between occupants, and differences in clothing and activity will influence the set— point preference of the occupants. The criteria in Section 5. The body of available data does not contain significant information regarding the comfort requirements of children, the disabled or the infirm, but the information in this standard can probably be applied to classroom situations.

Allowable indoor operative temperatures for spaces that meet these criteria may be determined from Figure 5.
