Basic knowledge regarding thermal comfort and weather conditions
Architects, MEP Engineers, Energy Analysts, Students
Basic information such as geographical location, type of thermal comfort or weather analysis required
Comfort and weather charts mentioned below for the specific geographic location along with a comparison of data of two cities can be viewed on the screen:
• Adaptive Comfort Zones (ASHRAE 55) for naturally ventilated spaces
• Weather data analysis showing annual temperature and relative humidity distribution and estimated operation modes (e.g. heating, natural ventilation, cooling, etc.) for 24 hour and daytime operating space
Calculator provides quick comparison of information regarding adaptive comfort zone and operation modes of the building based on weather data, which is extremely helpful in initial building design and analysis.
