Adaptive model stahdard a model that relates indoor design temperatures or acceptable temperature ranges to outdoor meteorological or climatological parameters. An accompanying table lists provisions for higher operative temperatures at air speeds above 0.

Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine. This 55-200 can be used together with the previous one, so that one can add or subtract the clothing ensemble from the clo value of each garment. There is a function to determine the representative clothing insulation at each segment. So far, all the clothing insulation value can be used when the occupant is standing. All of the building systems must be designed to maintain the occupied spaces at the indoor conditions specified by one of the described evaluation methods at design conditions.

To reduce draft risk at temperatures below The standard suggests that the time of measurements should last two or more hours asheae, and it should also be a representative time of the year for this specific building.

Accurate data from the measurement using thermal manikins is acceptable.

To evaluate the probability of satisfaction from satisfaction surveys, the standard suggests dividing the number of the votes falling between “just satisfied” and “very satisfied” by the total number of votes in that questions. Comfort zone refers to the combinations of air temperature, mean radiant temperature trand humidity that are predicted to be an acceptable thermal environment at particular values of air speed, metabolic rate, and clothing insulation I cl [1].

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. For seating occupants, the air temperature and air speed measurements shall be taken at heights of 0. The answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis. This approximation is an equation that relates the clothing insulation with the metabolic rate.


Exceedance hour is the number of occupied hours within a defined time period in which the environmental conditions in an occupied space are outside the comfort zone.

When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate. The standard addresses the four primary environmental factors temperaturethermal radiationhumidityand air speed and two personal factors activity and clothing that affect thermal comfort. When occupant is sitting, one has to realize the insulation effect of the chair, and the decrease of insulation due to compression of the air in the clothing.

Retrieved from ” https: And it is also not valid when occupants wear clothing that is highly impermeable to moisture transport. To evaluate the thermal comfort over a period of time in a mechanically conditioned space, the exceedance hours are the sum of all the hours when the absolute value of PMV is greater than 0.

It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals to Considering that a sleeping person or one in reclining posture will be provided with sufficient insulation with the bedding material, and he or she is also free to adjust, it is impossible to determine the clothing insulation effect for these occupants unless they are immobile.

Measuring time step should be no more than five minutes for air temperature, mean radiant temperature, and humidity, and no more than three minutes standrad the air speed.

Views Read Edit View history. 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. In the standard was updated with more extensive information on measurement protocols and an expanded definitions section. After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices. The graph is valid for prevailing mean temperatures between 10— The methodology is based on the SET Standard Effective Temperature model, which provides a way to assign an effective temperature at a standard metabolic rate, and clothing insulation values to compare thermal sensations experienced at a range of thermal conditions.


Interpretations for Standard 55-2004

This is the energy produced from a unit skin surface area of an average person seated at rest. The systems must be able to maintain these conditions within the expected range of indoor and outdoor operating conditions. When such measurement is not feasible, this standard provides four methods to determine the clothing insulation. These are not part of the standard, but provide additional information about terms and methods described within the standard, as well as a bibliography, and a description of the addenda incorporated from the previous version in the current version.

For an occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the exceedance hours are the sum of hours when the operative temperature falls outside of the lower and upper boundaries of the comfort zone. The graphic method utilizes an overlay on a psychrometric chart to indicate the operative temperatures and humidity at sstandard thermal comfort is achieved in the ashtae 1. For satisfaction surveys, the thermal satisfaction scale shall end with choices: The second method is to add sandard subtract atandard garment clo value to achieve the clothing ensemble in question.

Interpretations for Standard

In order to achieve acceptable results, the standard also suggests the minimum equipment accuracy based the current industry standard. For a mechanically conditioned space at an instance in time, the PMV ashraf SET model shall be used to establish the comfort zone, and the local thermal discomfort shall be evaluated against the limit posed this standard as well. For this model the standard provides a graph of acceptable indoor temperature limits at prevailing ashraw outdoor temperatures a mean of the daily mean outdoor temperatures of the previous 7—30 days.

For occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the adaptive model shall be used to determine the thermal comfort boundaries.
