That condition of mind which expresses satisfaction with the termal environment
4 Environmental factors:
_ Air temperature
_ Air velocity
2 Personal factors:
Some extra factors:
Clothing level estimation: clothingis classified according to its insulation value
(1 Clo = 0.155 m²°C/W)
The metabolismo: The metabolism is the energy released in by oxidation processes in the human body which depends on themuscular activity.
(1MET=58 W/m² of body surface).
A normal adult has a surface of 1.7 m², and a person in thermal comfort with an activity level of 1 Met will thus have a heat loss of approximately100 W.
Mean radiant temperature:
Thermal indoor climate: man does not feel the room temperature, he feels the heat loss from the body.
Parameters that must be measured: Air Temperature, MeanRadiant Temperature, Air
Velocity and Humidity
Influence of humidity on thermal comfort
3.Measurement of thermal conditions
WBGT – Heat Stress Monitor
Heat Stress Monitor takesreadings from, and calculates WGBT by:
- Dry Bulb Thermometer
-Wet Bulb Thermometer
C. Wet-Bulb Globe Temperature Formula (WBGT)For indoor or shaded environments:
WBGT = 0.7 x Tnwb + 0.3 x Tg
Tnwb = natural wet-bulb temperature
T = globe temperaturT e g temperature
Fordirect sunlight exposure:
WBGT = 0.7 x Tnwb + 0.2 x Tg + 0.1 x Tdb
Tdb = dry-bulb temperature

PMV (Predicted Mean Vote) is thesensation of: +3 hot, +2 warm, +1 slightly warm, 0 neutral, -1 slightly cold, -2 cool, -3 cold.
PPD means Predicted Percentage Dissatisfied with the thermal environment.
