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 There are six primary factors that must be addressed when defining conditions for thermal comfort. The amount that the temperature may be increased is shown in Figure 5. The system should have controls that enable it to meet comfort requirements at less than full system capacity.

For occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, ashrze adaptive model shall be used to determine the thermal comfort boundaries. Class A is used when it is desired to adhere to higher than typical comfort standards and Class C is used when it is desired to relax the typical comfort standards. Search the history of over billion web pages on the Internet.

Interpretation for Standard 55-1981 and 55-1992

A control schematic should be provided in block diagram with sensors, adjustable controls, and actuators accurately identified for each zone. Typically, rest breaks scheduled or hidden or other operational factors get parts, move products, etc.

This asymmetry may cause local discomfort and reduce the thermal acceptability of the space. Since floor temperatures ashhrae change rapidly, time averaging does not need to be considered. Each of these groups of occupants should be considered separately in determining the conditions required for comfort.


Users of this standard should use their judgement to match the activities being considered to comparable activities in the table. Design conditions shall include an appropriate exceedence level. sahrae

When the number is under 20, at least 16 must reply for the survey to make the survey representative. Except sedentary activities, metabolic rate for all other activities is likely to have range of variation. Operative temperatures may not fluctuate more than 1. The less extreme ashrar include both internal loads and the external environment.

ASHRAE 55 – Wikipedia

During operation of the system, the temperature ranges in Figure 5. Examples include different clothing style preferences for men and women, and offices where managers are expected to wear suits while other staff members may work in shirtsleeves. In this standard, the clothing insulation of an ensemble expressed as a clo— value I c i is used.

For many chairs, the net effect of sitting is a minimal change in clothing insulation. The adjustments in Section 5.

However, other reasonable circumstances involving loads or malfunctions may also result in excursions. The PMV model is run with asgrae air temperature and mean radiant temperature in question along with the applicable metabolic rate, asrae insulation, air speed, and humidity. For satisfaction surveys, the thermal satisfaction scale shall end with choices: To reduce draft risk at temperatures below The criteria specified in Section 5.

This standard is in close agreement with ISO Standards and Standing activity measurements shall be made at the 0. The requirements in this section correspond to Class B thermal environments, defined in Table 5.

Use of the PMV model in this standard is limited to air speeds not greater than 0. Fluctuations that occupants experinece as a result of moving between locations with different environmental conditions are allowed as long as the conditions at all of these locations are within the comfort zone for these moving occupants.


However, excursions resulting from construction activities can be part of the limited allowed exceedence. Values assumed for comfort parameters, including clothing and metabolic rate, used in calculation of design temperatures, shall be clearly stated 2. Occupant Activity Level Check the one that is most appropriate 1.

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 average outdoor air temperature at Because of differences in metabolic rates between individuals and the resultant differences in response to the environmentactual operating building temperatures cannot be specified in this standard.

The criteria for all sources of local thermal discomfort must be met simultaneously at the levels specified for a class for an environment to meet the requirements for that class. The second method is to add or subtract individual garment clo value to 55-11992 the clothing ensemble in question. The methods of Section 5.

The systems must be able to maintain these conditions within the expected range of indoor and outdoor operating conditions.
