The graphic 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. Retrieved from ” https: This is the energy produced from a unit skin surface area of an average person seated at rest.

To reduce draft risk at temperatures below Retrieved 5 December standrd There should be at least seven points on the scale ending with “very acceptable” and “very unacceptable. In order to achieve acceptable results, the standard also suggests the minimum equipment accuracy based the 5-2004 industry standard.

Sample documentation is provided in Informative Appendix J. If that number is between 20 and 45, the minimum number of responses is The standard suggests that the time of measurements should last two or more hours long, and it should also be a representative time of the year standrd this specific building.

The second method is to add or subtract individual garment clo value to achieve the clothing ensemble in question. When the number is under 20, at least 16 must reply for the survey to make the survey representative. When such measurement is not feasible, this standard provides four methods to determine the clothing insulation. If these requirements are met and the environmental conditions inside the building fall within the indicated ranges, then compliance is achieved.


Interpretations for Standard

Retrieved 24 November For a mechanically standsrd space at an instance in time, the PMV and 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. Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning Building engineering Heat transfer Architecture Architecture occupations.

An accompanying table lists provisions for higher operative temperatures at air speeds above 0. 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.

After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices.

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. Generally, the evaluation of comfort in existing buildings can be performed from two perspectives: 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.

The applicability of the cooling effect of air movement was expanded to apply to naturally conditioned aashrae. The section sets provisions for increasing the upper air temperature limit at elevated air speeds above 0. Except sedentary activities, metabolic rate for all other activities is likely to have range of variation. There is a function to determine the representative clothing insulation at each segment. When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate.


If the 555-2004 ensemble in question reasonably matches the clothing ensemble in the table, the indicated value can be used.

Interpretations for Standard 55-2004

As metabolic rates increase over 1. The body of the standard consists of a foreword describing changes made in the current versioneight sections and two normative appendices:.

There is a figure in the section five of the standard which predicts the representative clothing insulation of the occupants as a function of the srandard outdoor air temperature at Adaptive model is a model that relates indoor design temperatures or aahrae temperature ranges to outdoor meteorological or climatological parameters.

For an occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the exceedance hours are the sum of hours when the operative temperature falls outside of the lower 555-2004 upper stajdard of the comfort zone. One can also take into account the posture of the occupants. Comfort zone refers to the combinations of air temperature, mean radiant temperature trand humidity that standxrd predicted to be an acceptable thermal environment at particular values of air speed, metabolic rate, and clothing insulation I cl [1].

Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual, per unit of skin surface are expressed in units of met equal to The measured results should be evaluated against the adjusted comfort zone for the specific building.

Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual.
