In occupied rooms, measurements should be taken at a representative sample of occupant locations spread throughout the occupied zone. Howevermultiple locations around the body may be included to determine a better average. Simple hand calculations and computer models of buildings and systems ashrar available for this purpose. There are no established lower humidity limits for thermal comfort; and consequentlythis standard does not specify a minimum humidity level.

Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual.

Interpretation for Standard 55-1981 and 55-1992

Local thermal discomfort caused by vertical temperature differences. A control schematic should be provided in block diagram with sensors, adjustable controls, and actuators accurately identified for each zone.

Determine the need to verify floor surface temperature, vertical temperature difference and radiant temperature asymmetry. The maximum allowable air speed for each class of environment is specified in Figure 5. However, this standard allows elevated air speed to be used to increase the maximum temperature for acceptable comfort if the affected occupants are able to control the air speed.

55-192 requirements of this section are based on environmental temperatures near the center of the comfort zone. For example, the customers in a restaurant may have a metabolic rate near 1.


Additionally, all requirements of the applicable section, 5. Evaluation of the Thermal Environment 1. Time averaging for radiant asymmetry is the same as for mean radiant temperature. Turbulence intensity is the ratio of the standard deviation of the airspeed with respect to time and the time— averaged airspeed.

Some of the data in this table are reported as a range and some as a single value. 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. Occupant ‘ s Name: That is, both temperatures increase by the same amount with respect to the starting point.

Examples include different clothing style preferences for men and women, and offices where managers are expected to wear suits while other staff members may work in shirtsleeves. If that number is between 20 and 45, the minimum number of responses is The standard specifies conditions in which a specified fraction of the occupants will find the environment thermally acceptable. Equipment Equipment adding or taking away from the heat load.

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 ashrrae. Variables may be non-uniform over an occupant ‘ s body and this non— uniformity may be an important consideration in determining thermal comfort. One has to keep in mind that the results from point-in-time surveys are only effective during the time when the surveys were solicited.


Values assumed for comfort parameters, including clothing and metabolic rate, used in calculation of design temperatures, shall be clearly stated 2. See Section 3 for definition of response time and its relation to the time constant.

Interpretation for Standard and

Time averaging and spatial averaging are the same as for air temperature. Draft Draft is unwanted local cooling of the body caused by air movement. General guidelines for the use of these data follow.

The user of this standard must specify the class of thermal comfort. The answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis.

In the body of the standard was rewritten in mandatory language, with informative language moved from the body of the standard to informative asjrae. For a mechanically conditioned space at an instance in time, the PMV and SET zshrae shall be used to establish the comfort zone, and the local thermal discomfort shall be evaluated against the limit posed this standard as well. This standard does not address acceptable floor temperatures when people 55-19992 on the floor.

As for point-in-time surveys, the survey should be solicited during the time of occupancy, and the satisfaction scale ought to be continuous. 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.
