And it is also not valid when occupants wear clothing that is highly impermeable to moisture transport. When the mean radiant temperature is low and the air temperature is high, elevated air speed is less effective at increasing heat loss.

A number of other, secondary factors affect comfort in some circumstances. This variability takes two forms. Turbulence intensity may also be expressed in percent [i. Individuals ashtae adjust the bedding so as to suit individual preferences. Draft sensation depends on the air speed, the air temperature, the turbulence intensity, the activity, and the clothing.

Views Read Edit View history. Generally, the evaluation of comfort in existing buildings can be performed from two perspectives: The maximum allowable air speed for each class of environment is specified in Figure 5.

If the criteria are not met for some occupants, then those occupants must be identified.

Expressed in met units in this standard. Air speed required to offset increased temperature.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

In the standard included the following changes. Measuring time step should be no more than five minutes for air temperature, mean radiant temperature, and humidity, and no more than three minutes for the air ashraae. This standard is intended primarily for these conditions. To demonstrate compliance the following must be documented, where applicable. Standing activity measurements shall be made at the 0. A time-weighted average metabolic rate may be used for individuals with activities that vary over a period of one hour or less.


Retrieved from ” https: For occupant-controlled naturally conditioned spaces, the measured results shall be check with the comfort zone established by adaptive model.

Fluctuations that occupants experinece as a result of moving between locations with different environmental conditions are allowed as long as the conditions at all of these locations are within the comfort zone for these moving occupants.

551992 Due to increased body coverage, the effect of increased air speed is less with higher levels of clothing insulation. If the period of the fluctuation cycle exceeds 15 minutes, the variation is treated as a drift or ramp in operative temperature and the requirements of Section 5. It is not intended to be a measurement specification. However, this standard allows elevated air speed to be used to increase the maximum temperature for acceptable comfort if the affected occupants 5-51992 able to control the air speed.

For metabolic rates less than or equal to 1. Local thermal discomfort caused by vertical temperature differences.

These shall be estimated in the form of mean values over a period of 0. See Appendix A for estimation of metabolic rates and Appendix B for estimation of clothing Insulation. The general maintenance, operation and performance of the ashrad systems should be stated in writing, followed by more specific comments on the maintenance and operation of the automatic controls and manually adjustable controls, and the response of the system to each.

For thermal comfort—this is the standard. Instructions and a form for commenting are provided with this draft. Building systems combination of mechanical systems, control systems, and thermal envelopes must be designed so that, at design conditions, they are able to maintain the space at conditions within the range specified by one of the methods in this standard.

55–1992 figure applies to a lightly clothed person with clothing insulation between 0. This method ashrea based on the concept that when occupants choose their clothing according to their environment, the outdoor environment is more influential than the indoor one. Rather, ahrae building shall be operated in such a manner that the majority of occupants consider the temperature setpoints to be acceptable, and that the building systems can maintain those setpoints within the tolerances specified in the design.


Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning Building engineering Heat transfer Architecture Architecture occupations.

If desk— level furniture which is in place ashdae the view of strong radiant sources and sinks, the measurements are to be taken above desktop level. Hong Thermal insulation provided by chairs”.

The function line has four segments: In general, body motion decreases the clothing insulation by pumping air through clothing. The answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis. If there are multiple such locations, the measurement can be performed at a representative location. Three classes of acceptable thermal ashrxe for general comfort.

Because of differences in metabolic rates between individuals and the resultant ashraee in response to the environmentactual operating building temperatures cannot be specified in this standard.

Accurate data from the measurement using thermal manikins is acceptable. If zones are interdependent or inter— active, their control diagram should be shown in total on one block diagram with the point s of interconnection identified.

Thus, it only provides an approximation of the clothing insulation value of a moving person. Specific limits in the adjustment of manual controls shall be stated.

Humidity shall be measured within the occupied zone. Two zones are shown, one for 0. The standard suggests that the time of measurements should last two or more hours long, and it should also be a representative time of the year for this specific building.
