To evaluate the probability of satisfaction from satisfaction surveys, the standard suggests dividing the number of the votes falling between “just satisfied” and 55-20100 satisfied” by the total number of votes in that questions.

For a mechanically conditioned space at an instance in time, the PMV and SET model shall be used to establish the comfort zone, and sshrae local thermal discomfort shall be evaluated against the limit posed this standard as well.

The answers of open-ended questions from “very dissatisfied” occupants should be documented for later analysis. Retrieved from ” https: After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices.

The standard addresses the four primary environmental ashare temperaturethermal radiationhumidityand air speed and two personal factors activity and clothing that affect thermal comfort. 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 [1].

There is a variety of ashare to determine the insulation provided by clothing. The standard reminds the users that they should use their own judgment to match the activities being considered to the comparable activities in the table. And it is also not valid when occupants wear clothing that is highly impermeable to moisture transport.

To demonstrate compliance the following must be documented, where applicable. In the standard was updated with more extensive information on measurement protocols and an expanded definitions section.

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 For thermal comfort—this is the standard. Indoor thermal comfort can be determined from the responses of the occupant survey. It is also specified that the methods provided by this standard are no longer valid when the clothing insulation exceed 1.


It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals to The most recent version of the standard was published in You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.

Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. For an occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, ashrea exceedance hours are the sum of hours when the operative temperature falls outside of the lower and upper boundaries of the comfort zone.

ASHRAE 55 – Wikipedia

Adaptive model is a model that relates indoor design temperatures or acceptable temperature ranges to outdoor meteorological or climatological parameters. When such measurement is not feasible, this standard provides four methods to determine the clothing insulation. 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. The section sets provisions for increasing the upper air temperature limit at elevated air speeds above 0.

Documentation requirements to show that a design complies with Standard 55 are contained in Section 6, and a sample compliance form is provided in Appendix K. This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat If the clothing ensemble in question reasonably matches the clothing ensemble in the table, the indicated value can be used. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine.

In the standard underwent significant changes with the addition of two thermal comfort models: We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. 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.

When the number is under 20, at least 16 must reply for the survey to make the survey representative. 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 value of PMV is greater than 0.

Standard 55 specifies conditions for acceptable thermal environments and is intended for use in design, operation, and commissioning of buildings and other occupied spaces. Thermal comfort is the condition of mind asrae expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation.


In the standard included the following changes. The comfort zone boundaries must be adjusted to the air movements, and the zone conditions should be adjusted to avoid local thermal discomfort.

Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual. 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. So far, all the clothing insulation value can be used when the occupant is standing. The last major change concerns measuring air speed and air temperature experienced by the occupant, which now must be an average across three heights and over a period of time.

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.

Sample documentation is provided in Informative Appendix J. 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. It was revised in,and The survey shall be distributed to the entire occupancy or representative part of the occupancy. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions.

Measuring time step should be no more than five minutes for air temperature, mean radiant temperature, and humidity, and no more than three minutes for the air speed. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.

These values are valid for an average adult with surface skin area of 1. The second method is to add or subtract individual garment clo value to achieve the clothing ensemble in question. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
