It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals to From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved 5 December In the standard was updated with more extensive information on measurement protocols and an expanded definitions section. To reduce draft risk at temperatures below Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine.
There should be at least seven points on the scale ending with “very acceptable” and “very unacceptable. 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. A occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space is where the thermal conditions of the space are primarily regulated by occupant-controlled openings.
Subscription pricing is determined by: 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.
Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy
It also added a general satisfaction survey to section 7 intended ashraae evaluate general thermal comfort in an occupied space, bringing the standard in line with current survey-based post-occupancy evaluation POE practices. For such spaces, the indoor and outdoor air temperature and mean radiant temperature 55-201 the air speed need to be measured.
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 garment. Measuring time step should be no more than five minutes for air temperature, mean radiant temperature, ashgae humidity, and no more than three minutes for the air speed.
Indoor thermal comfort can be determined from the responses of the occupant survey. The measured results should be evaluated against the adjusted comfort zone for the specific building.
There are two cases when evaluating thermal comfort: After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. The graphic method utilizes an overlay on a psychrometric chart to indicate the operative temperatures and humidity at which thermal asbrae is achieved in the winter 1.
As for point-in-time surveys, the survey should be solicited during the time of occupancy, and the satisfaction scale ought to be continuous. Retrieved from ” https: This standard is not included in any packages. For mechanically conditioned spaces, the PMV-based comfort zone has to be determined, which includes measuring and recording the metabolic activity and clothing insulation.
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.
The standard addresses the four primary environmental factors temperaturethermal radiationhumidityand air speed and two personal factors activity and clothing that affect thermal comfort.
Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning Building engineering Heat transfer Ashgae Architecture occupations. Need more than one copy? This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat For occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the adaptive model shall be used to determine the thermal comfort boundaries.
For a mechanically conditioned 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.
Retrieved 24 November When extracting environmental data from the Building Administration System, one should evaluate the location, height, and time step of the sensors based on the previous suggestion. The survey shall be distributed to the entire occupancy or representative part of the occupancy.
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 ashgae of PMV is greater than 0.
Given the widespread and easy accessibility of computing power and third-party implementations of the analytical method, it is expected that more users will favor the comprehensive analytical methods over the graphical method. Thus, it only provides an approximation of the clothing insulation value of a moving person. Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual.
Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy
To demonstrate compliance the following must be documented, where applicable. 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. The answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis.
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 55-20110 occupants unless they are immobile.

ASHRAE 55 – Wikipedia
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. 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.
And this equation is only valid when the metabolic rate is between 1. For the first, it is not correct to use the average clothing insulation value to determine the desired thermal conditions for all occupants. First, one can estimate the clothing insulation from the table provided in section five. The measurement locations should be where the occupants are expected to 55-2010 time in.
This section of the standard is applicable for the design of buildings. As metabolic rates increase over 1. Standard 55 specifies conditions for acceptable thermal environments and is intended for use in design, operation, and commissioning of buildings and other occupied spaces.
