For naturally ventilated spaces, the NBC specifies Tropical Summer Index within the range –°C as comfortable (optimum °C). However, the code does not refer to adaptive thermal comfort. The objective of this study was to assess students’ perceptions of thermal environment, in terms of thermal sensation. of naturally ventilated buildings in warm climates. This paper exposes some aspects of the debate in the field of thermal comfort in naturally ventilated buildings located in warm and humid climates. It also describes the methodology and results of a survey performed in Old Havana concerning the thermal sensation of occupants in courtyard.

At the same time, field studies show that people working in naturally ventilated office buildings in warm climates accept higher temperatures (de Dear and Brager, ). The standard EN (CEN, ) provides limits for acceptable indoor temperatures for naturally ventilated buildings. Field study was conducted in naturally ventilated primary school buildings in a warm and humid environment in Imo State, Nigeria to determine the thermal comfort perception of young children (aged 7–12 years) and to understand the thermal conditions in the classrooms.

  Occupants’ preferences for air movement in naturally ventilated buildings have been extracted from a database of three thermal comfort surveys conducted in the humid subtropical climate zone in China, during winter, spring, and summer seasons. The distribution of draft sensation shows that only , , and % of the subjects in winter, spring, and summer, respectively, felt that the.   The survey was conducted in a mixture of air-conditioned, evaporative-cooled and naturally ventilated classrooms in nine schools located in three distinct subtropical climate zones during the summer of A total of questionnaires were collected from both primary (grade) and secondary (high) schools.

Survey of the thermal environment in naturally ventilated offices in summer by L. J. Stewart Download PDF EPUB FB2

The statistical summary of indoor and outdoor environmental parameters in naturally ventilated classrooms during the entire study period is shown in Table 7.

The naturally ventilated buildings experienced a higher fluctuation in mean indoor temperature ranged between °C and 37 °C, across different classrooms and by:   1. Introduction. The indoor thermal environment is normally unacceptable in naturally ventilated industrial buildings with high temperature heat sources, such as iron and steel plants and metallurgy plants.As a result, workers who are directly exposed to the unacceptable thermal environment may have increased health symptoms and decreased productivity.Cited by: In this study, questionnaire based thermal comfort survey has been carried out in naturally ventilated classrooms of Tezpur University during the months of February and May i.e.

at the end of. Nudge 3: Allow the air conditioning setpoint in your office to vary seasonally. The original ACM used outdoor climate to describe the environmental context shaping the thermal experience of occupants in naturally ventilated buildings, in which the indoor conditions are closely tied to the natural rhythms outdoors.

Therefore, the objective of this research was to approach thermal comfort in cold, humid tropical zones, through the study of naturally ventilated offices located in the city of Bogotá, Colombia.

Eight offices located in different areas of the city were analysed over approximately three months, surveying 72 people and carrying out by: 4. Findings are reported from a field survey in a naturally ventilated primary school in Southampton, UK, which included thermal comfort surveys and simultaneous measurements of indoor environmental.

In this study, questionnaire based thermal comfort survey has been carried out in naturally ventilated classrooms of Tezpur University during the months of February and May i.e. at the end of the winter season and the beginning of summer. Thermal sensation and preferences of students are recorded on ASHRAE thermal sensation scale.

A thermal comfort field study has been carried out in five cities in the humid subtropical climate zone in China.

The survey was performed in naturally ventilated and air-conditioned buildings during the summer season in There were occupants from buildings who participated in this study and questionnaire responses were collected. A thermal comfort field study has been carried out in five cities in the humid subtropical climate zone in China.

The survey was performed in naturally ventilated and air-conditioned buildings during the summer season in There were occupants from buildings who participated in this study and questionnaire responses were collected. A field survey, carried out by the authors, is described in this paper.

This highlights both the potential and the constraints of natural ventilation in office buildings. The survey focused on the two main parameters, which determine indoor environmental quality, namely thermal comfort.

ASHRAE’s Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy Standard characterizes the indoor summer comfort range 1 as about 74–83°F (23–28°C) and the winter comfort range 2 as about 67–79°F (19–26°C), depending on the relative humidity.

This article presents a pilot study of thermal comfort and adaptive behaviors of occupants who live in naturally ventilated dormitories at the campus of the National University of Singapore. A longitudinal survey and field measurement were conducted to measure thermal comfort, adaptive behaviors and indoor environment qualities.

This study revealed that occupants living in naturally ventilated. A field survey was accomplished in a naturally ventilated university classroom in Bucharest, Romania, in winter and spring.

thermal comfort and the thermal environment in naturally ventilated. The results also show that PMV/PPD model fails to predict the thermal sensation of the students in naturally ventilated classrooms and shows maximum percentage of subjects (%) dissatisfied with the surrounding indoor environmental conditions whereas on the basis of the questionnaire survey, % subjects reported ‘neutral’ sensation.

Comfort standards (ISOASHRAE 55) specify the exact physical criteria for producing acceptable thermal environments, such as temperature, air movement, and humidity limits. These, however, are often difficult to comply with, particularly in hot humid and cold wet seasons in Nanjing, China.

Changing expectations of comfort is important in evaluating comfort, since naturally. A long-term survey was carried out from Jan. to Feb. in two naturally ventilated offices, located in Changsha, China.

During the survey, occupants’ thermal adaptive behaviour (use of. Field study of thermal comfort was conducted in six naturally ventilated hostel buildings of composite climate considering Class-II protocol of field measurement during summer Total survey samples of same age group (average years) were collected including objective and subjective measurements.

Making sound decisions early in the design process - for example on the shape of the building and its rooms, and on the size and position of windows, and the choice of glazing - can reduce energy consumption by up to 50 percent.

A field study of the thermal comfort of workers in natural ventilated office buildings in Oxford and Aberdeen, UK, was carried out which included information about use of building controls. The neutral temperature in naturally ventilated offices was °C (°F) lower in winter and °C (°F) lower in summer than in air-conditioned offices.
