Título Local thermal discomfort
Información bibliográfica 1985, No.1, p.3-42. Illus. 55 ref.
Resumen To provide an acceptable thermal environment for human beings, it is essential for the design and evaluation of a workplace to establish quantitative standards for thermal environments. One requirement to be met is that a person be in thermal neutrality as predicted by the comfort equation found in such standards as ISO 7730. Thermal neutrality depends on personal activity level, degree of insulation by clothing, air temperature, mean radiant temperature, air velocity and air humidity. A further requirement is that no local thermal discomfort exist. Local discomfort may be caused by asymmetric thermal radiation, local convective cooling (draughts), vertical air temperature gradients or contact with warm or cold floors. Quantitative treatments of each of these factors and recommended limits for avoiding discomfort are presented.
