ANSI/ASHRAE Standard – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

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. As metabolic rates increase over 1.

These values are valid for an average adult with surface skin area of 1. For such spaces, the indoor and outdoor air temperature and mean radiant temperature and the air speed need to be measured. In the standard was updated with more extensive information on measurement protocols and an expanded definitions section. Need more than one copy?

Home Technical Resources Bookstore. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. If these requirements are met and the environmental conditions inside the building fall within the indicated ranges, then compliance is achieved.

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. Standard 55 specifies conditions for acceptable thermal environments and is intended for use in design, operation, and commissioning of buildings and other occupied spaces. Radiant temperature asymmetry between ceiling and floor, and air and walls must be limited to reduce discomfort.


ASHRAE 55 – Wikipedia

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

Operative temperatures may not fluctuate more than 1. Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

It was first published inand ashrze has been updated every three to six years. For seating occupants, the air temperature and air speed measurements shall be taken at heights of 0. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. Sample documentation is provided in Informative Appendix J. 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.

For aehrae naturally conditioned space, the adaptive model shall be used to determine the thermal asgrae boundaries. A occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space is where the thermal conditions of the space are primarily regulated by occupant-controlled openings.

Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. An accompanying table lists provisions for higher operative temperatures at air speeds above 0. The applicability of the cooling effect of air movement was expanded to apply to naturally conditioned spaces. In the standard included the following changes.


Accurate data from the measurement using thermal manikins is acceptable. If the occupant is moving, it also affects the insulation value of clothing. 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 If ashrrae document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email.

And this equation is only valid when the metabolic rate is between 1. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. SinceStandard 55 has been rewritten with a renewed focus on application of the standard by practitioners and use of clear, enforceable language. The body of the standard consists of a foreword describing changes made in the ashras versioneight sections and two normative appendices:.

Clothing insulation is the resistance to sensible heat transfer provided by a clothing ensemble expressed in units of clo, which is a unit to quantify the insulation provided by garments and clothing qshrae. As for ashraee surveys, the survey should be solicited during the time of occupancy, and the satisfaction scale ought to be continuous.
