Typical examples might be near windows, diffuser outlets, corners, and entries. After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices. Description of Thermal Environmental Variables The following description of the environmental variables is provided for the purpose of understanding their use in Section 5.

The use of an automatic recorder is the preferred method of measurement; however, it is possible to make the measurements required in this section without the use of recording equipment. Application of acceptable temperature drifts to built environments as a mode of energy conservation. Recommendations concerning energy source selection should be made by its members. There is a figure 55–2007 the section five of the standard which predicts the representative clothing insulation of the occupants as a function of the average outdoor air temperature at The most recent version of asnrae standard was published in If occupancy distribution cannot be estimated, then the measurement locations shall be as follows: Retail Rating System Version: When occupants do not have control over the cyclical variation or drifts in indoor environmental conditions, the conditions within this section must be met.


CBE Thermal Comfort Tool for ASHRAE

Complete plans, descriptions, component literature, and operation and maintenance instructions for the building systems should be provided and maintained. If yes, provide a brief explanation as to why the increase is justified.

This section specifies allowable differences between the air temperature at head level and the air temperature at ankle level. Because there are large variations, both physiologically and psychologically, from person to person, it is asbrae to satisfy everyone in a space.

Clothing insulation is expressed in a number of ways. Retrieved 5 December A sitting posture results in a decreased thermal insulation due to compression of air layers in the clothing. Since floor temperatures seldom change rapidly, time averaging does not need to be considered.

Xshrae occupants engaged in near sedentary physical activity with metabolic rates between 1.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

The range of operative temperatures presented in Figure 5. I hereby attest that I have the authority and am empowered to grant this copyright release. Two zones are shown—one for 0. If the ensemble in question matches reasonably well with one of the ensembles in this table, then the indicated value ashrxe Icl should be used. For example, the customers in a restaurant may have a metabolic rate near 1.

In some situations, it will not ashae possible to provide an acceptable level or the same level of comfort to all disparate groups of occupants e.

These shall be estimated in the form of mean values over a period of 0. Turbulence intensity may also be expressed in percent i. Nor does it address acceptable floor temperatures when people sit on the floor.


The following instructions apply to change proposals submitted in electronic form. For analysis of the environmental variables outlined in Section 7. The standard reminds the users that they should use their own judgment to match the activities being considered to the comparable activities in the table.

The limits for floor temperature are specified in Table 5. Humidity shall be measured at any level within the occupied zone if only one measurement location is required.

Humidity, comfort and contact lenses.

Thermal comfort – compliance

The measuring period for determining the average air speed at any location shall be three minutes. The body of available data does not contain significant information regarding the comfort requirements of children, 55-2070 disabled, or the infirm.

Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation. In this psychrometric chart the abscissa is the dry-bulb temperature, and the mean radiant temperature MRT is fixed, controlled by the inputbox. Use of the PMV model in this standard is limited to air speeds not greater than 0. There must be no mechanical cooling system for the space e. The overall space supplied by the system should be shown in a plan view layout, with all individual zones within it identified.
