ANSI/ASHRAE Standard Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy is an .. 5 December ^ Jump up to: ASHRAE Standard 55 ( ). ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 3. It is intended that all of the criteria in this standard be applied together since comfort in the indoor environment is.

If that number is between 20 and 45, the minimum number of responses is As described within the standard: This table can be used together with the previous one, so that one can add or subtract the clothing ensemble from the clo value of each asbrae. The comfort zone boundaries must be adjusted to the air movements, and the zone conditions should be adjusted to avoid local thermal discomfort.
When the number is under 20, at least 16 must reply for the 555-2004 to make the survey representative. It is also specified that the methods provided by this standard are no longer valid when the clothing insulation exceed 1.
In the standard included the following changes. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine.
Section 7 underwent major revisions for measuring thermal comfort in existing spaces including procedures for physical measurements and survey methods, and how to evaluate and report results.
One can also take into account the posture of the occupants. Generally, the evaluation of comfort in existing buildings can be performed from two perspectives: Adaptive model is a model that relates indoor design temperatures or acceptable temperature ranges to outdoor meteorological or climatological parameters. And it is also not valid when occupants wear clothing that is highly impermeable 55-22004 moisture transport.
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 . In the body of the standard was rewritten in mandatory language, with informative language moved from the body of the standard to informative appendices. If the occupant is moving, it also affects the insulation value of clothing.
When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate.
Interpretations for Standard 55-2004
The survey shall be distributed to the entire occupancy or representative part of the occupancy. 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 ashraw previous version in the current version.
This section of the standard is applicable for the design of buildings. In general, body motion decreases the clothing insulation by pumping air through clothing. Thus, it only provides an approximation of the clothing insulation value of a moving person.

To demonstrate compliance the following must be documented, where applicable. This method is based on the adhrae that when occupants choose their clothing according to ashhrae environment, the outdoor environment is more influential than the indoor one.
In the first form, different individuals wear different clothing due to factors that are not related to thermal conditions, and the second form is opposite. 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.
Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation.
There is a variety of means to determine the insulation provided by clothing. This approximation is an equation that relates the clothing insulation with the metabolic rate.
Clothing insulation is the resistance to sensible heat transfer provided by a clothing ensemble expressed in units of clo, which is a unit to quantify the insulation provided by garments and clothing ensembles. An accompanying table lists provisions for higher operative temperatures at air speeds above 0. Retrieved 5 December For such spaces, the indoor and outdoor air temperature and mean radiant temperature axhrae the air speed need to be measured. For this model the standard provides a graph of acceptable indoor temperature limits at prevailing mean outdoor temperatures a mean of the daily mean outdoor temperatures of the previous 7—30 days.
If the clothing ensemble in question reasonably matches the clothing ensemble in the table, the indicated value can be used. First, one can estimate the clothing insulation from the table provided in section five.
