The section sets provisions for increasing the upper air temperature limit at elevated air speeds above 0.

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. After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices. For occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the adaptive model shall be used to determine the thermal comfort boundaries. These values are valid for an average adult with surface skin adhrae of 1.

The systems must be able staandard maintain these conditions within the expected range of indoor and outdoor operating conditions. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine. First, one can estimate the clothing insulation from the table provided in section five. Views Read Edit View history. The body of the standard consists of a foreword describing changes made in the current version 55-204, eight sections and two normative appendices:.

Interpretations for Standard

And it is also not valid when occupants wear clothing that is highly impermeable to moisture transport. This approximation is an equation that relates the clothing 555-2004 with the metabolic rate.

If there are multiple such locations, the measurement can be performed at a representative location. The measurement locations should be where the occupants are expected to spend time in.

Except sedentary activities, metabolic rate for all other activities is likely to have range of variation. 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. For this stanrard the standard provides a graph of acceptable indoor temperature limits at prevailing mean outdoor temperatures aahrae mean of the daily mean outdoor temperatures of the previous 7—30 days.


It was first published inand since has been updated every three to six years. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Indoor thermal comfort can be determined from the responses of the occupant survey. A occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space is where the thermal conditions of the space are primarily regulated by occupant-controlled openings.

The second method is to add or subtract individual garment clo value to achieve the clothing ensemble in question. To demonstrate compliance the following must be documented, where applicable. For the first, it is not correct to use the average clothing insulation value to determine the desired thermal conditions for all occupants. It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals to ashraae 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.

To evaluate the standrad 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.

The most recent version of the standard was published in As described within the standard: Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by ashhrae evaluation. Accurate 55-2004 from the measurement using thermal manikins is acceptable.

When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate. Radiant temperature asymmetry between ceiling and floor, and air and walls must be limited to reduce discomfort. For satisfaction surveys, the stansard satisfaction scale staneard end with choices: There should be at least seven points on the scale ending with “very acceptable” and “very unacceptable.

Thus, it only provides an approximation 55-2040 the clothing insulation value of a moving person. 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.


It is also specified that the methods provided by this standard are no longer valid when the clothing insulation exceed 1.

Interpretations for Standard 55-2004

The heights need to be adjusted for standing persons. This table can be used together with the previous one, so 55-22004 one can add or subtract the clothing ensemble from the clo value of each garment. This is the energy produced from a unit skin surface area of an average person seated at rest.

It was revised inasjrae,and standzrd Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual, per unit stanard skin surface are expressed in units of met equal to 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.

Metabolic rate is the rate of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual. Clothing insulation refers to the heat transfer of the entire body, which includes the uncovered parts, such as hands and heads. Standadr of the building systems must be designed to maintain the occupied spaces at the indoor conditions specified by one of the described evaluation methods at design conditions.

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. This section of the standard is applicable for the design of buildings.

For seating occupants, the air temperature and air speed measurements shall be taken at heights of 0.

The third method is to add all the clo value of each garment to match the clothing ensemble in question. As metabolic rates increase over 1.
