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.

For an occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space, the exceedance hours are the sum of hours when the operative temperature falls outside of the lower and upper boundaries of the comfort zone.

The systems must be able to maintain these conditions within the expected range of indoor and outdoor operating conditions. The environmental factors addressed in this standard are temperature, thermal radiation, humidity, and air speed; the personal factors are those of activity and clothing. 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.

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. It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals to All informative background information has been moved to informative appendices. When the number is under 20, at least 16 must reply for the survey to make the survey representative. If that number is between 20 and 45, the minimum number of responses is These values are valid for an average adult with surface skin area of 1.

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.

Adaptive model is a model that relates indoor design temperatures or acceptable temperature ranges to outdoor meteorological or climatological parameters. To reduce draft risk at temperatures below It also added a general satisfaction survey to section 7 intended to evaluate general thermal comfort in an occupied space, bringing the standard in line with current survey-based post-occupancy evaluation POE practices. This section of the standard is applicable for the design of buildings.


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 The second method is to add or subtract individual garment clo value to achieve the clothing ensemble in question.

This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. When the duration of an activity is equal or less than one hour, one can use a time-weighted metabolic rate. Clothing insulation refers to the heat transfer of the entire body, which includes the uncovered parts, such as hands and heads. 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.

Standard 55 – Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

For humidity ratios above 0. The most recent version of the standard was published in Generally, the evaluation of comfort in existing buildings can be performed from two perspectives: When occupants do not have control over the cyclical variation or drifts in indoor environmental conditions, the conditions within this section must be met.

Need more than one copy? A occupant-controlled naturally conditioned space is where the thermal conditions of the space are primarily regulated by occupant-controlled openings. SinceStandard 55 has been rewritten with a renewed focus on application of the standard by practitioners and use of clear, enforceable language.

Looking for previous revisions of this standard? 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.

The standard suggests that the time of measurements should last two or more hours long, and it should also be a representative time of the year asgrae this specific building. 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]. 552010 of these sections are clarified and streamlined for use by owners and third-party rating systems.

For the first, it is not correct to use the average clothing insulation value to determine the desired thermal conditions for all occupants. This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat For seating occupants, asyrae air temperature and air speed measurements 55-2100 be taken at heights of 0. There should be at least seven points on the scale ending with “very acceptable” and “very unacceptable.

As described within the standard: The applicability of the cooling effect of air movement was expanded to apply to naturally conditioned spaces.

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.

There is a function to determine the representative clothing insulation at each segment. One can also take into account the posture of the occupants. 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 555-2010 free to adjust, it is impossible to determine the clothing insulation effect for these occupants unless they are immobile.

It was first published inand since has been updated every three to six years. If the occupant is moving, it also affects the ashdae value of clothing. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards.

And it is also not valid when occupants wear clothing that is highly impermeable to moisture transport. Requirements are now clearly stated and calculation procedures appear sequentially. For occupant-controlled naturally conditioned spaces, the measured results shall be check with the comfort zone established by adaptive model. Section 7 underwent major revisions for measuring thermal comfort in existing spaces including procedures for physical measurements asurae survey methods, and how to evaluate and report results.
