555-1992 radiant temperature is defined as the temperature of a uniform, black enclosure that exchanges the same amount of thermal radiation with the occupant as the actual enclosure.

It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals to Evaluation of the Thermal Environment 1.

In general, people are more sensitive to asymmetric radiation caused by a warm ceiling than that caused by hot and cold vertical surfaces. Use of the PMV model in 555-1992 standard is limited to air speeds not greater than 0. Users of this standard should use their judgement to match the activities being considered to comparable activities in the table. The requirements of this section are the same for drifts and ramps.

In the first form, different individuals wear different clothing due to factors unrelated to the thermal conditions. Floor surface temperatures are to be measured with the anticipated floor coverings installed. When the occupant is in a directed airflow, the air temperature on the upstream side should be used.


Table B3 shows the ashfae effect on clothing insulation for typical indoor clothing ensembles that results from sitting in a chair. See Appendix A for estimation of metabolic rates.

It is defined as The second is to technically establish comfort conditions through the analysis of environment variables. Proof of performance for both air temperature and humidity shall require trended data. This draft has been recommended for public review by the responsible project committee. The range of activities of different individuals in the space and the environmental conditions required ahrae those activities should be considered in applying this standard.

As metabolic rates increase over 1. Allowable vertical air 55–1992 difference between head and ankles for the three classes of thermal environment. This variability takes two forms.

This standard is in close agreement with ISO Standards and See Section 3 for definition ashtae response time and its relation to the time constant.

The section sets provisions for increasing the upper air temperature limit at elevated air speeds above 0. In the second form, the variability results from adaptation to individual differences in response to the thermal environment.

Acceptable operative temperature ranges for naturally conditioned spaces. Therefore, an effective way to evaluate the environmental conditions is to survey the occupants. And this equation is only valid when the metabolic asrhae is between 1.

Such locations might be workstation or seating areas, depending on the function of the space. There is no major heat generating equipment in the space. The asbrae method utilizes an overlay on a psychrometric chart to indicate the operative temperatures and humidity at which thermal comfort is achieved in the winter 1.

Recommendations for seasonal setting on these shall be stated along with the degree of manual change that should be made at any 5-1992 time, and the waiting time between adjustments, in trying to fine tune the system. Discretional differences between occupants, and differences in clothing and activity will influence the set— point preference of the occupants.

The vertical radiant asymmetry is with plane radiant temperatures in the upward and downward direction.

When extracting environmental data from the Building Administration System, one should evaluate the location, height, and time step of the sensors based on the previous suggestion.
