The third method is to add all the clo value of each garment to match the clothing ensemble in question. In the body of the standard was rewritten in mandatory language, with informative language moved from the body of the standard to informative appendices.

ASHRAE 55 – Wikipedia

Metabolic rate is the azhrae of transformation of chemical energy into heat and mechanical work by metabolic activities of an individual. Retrieved from ” https: The section sets provisions for asrae the upper air temperature limit at elevated air speeds above 0. For such spaces, the indoor and outdoor air temperature and mean radiant temperature and the air speed need to be measured.

Section 7 underwent major revisions for measuring thermal comfort in existing spaces including procedures for physical measurements and survey methods, and ashae to evaluate and report results. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. Compliance is achieved if the conditions provide thermal neutrality, measured as falling between The measurement locations should be where the occupants are expected to spend time in. The survey shall be distributed to the entire occupancy or representative part of the occupancy.


You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. There is a function to determine the representative clothing insulation at each segment. There is a variety of means to determine the insulation provided by clothing. The most recent version of the standard was published in Need more than one copy?

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

As metabolic rates increase over 1. The asjrae of the cooling effect of air movement was expanded to apply to naturally conditioned spaces. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.

Standard 55 specifies conditions for acceptable thermal environments and is intended for use in design, operation, and commissioning of buildings and other occupied spaces. As the voice of the U.

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. It is defined as per unit of skin surface area which equals 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.

The standard addresses the four primary environmental factors temperaturethermal radiationhumidityand air speed and two personal factors activity and clothing that affect thermal comfort. After the body of the standard there are 11 informative appendices.

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. There are 55-22010 cases when evaluating thermal comfort: 55-22010 for previous revisions of this standard?

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 The systems must be able to maintain these ashre within the expected range of indoor and outdoor operating conditions.


If there are multiple such locations, the measurement can be performed at a representative location. In order to achieve acceptable results, the standard also suggests the minimum equipment accuracy based the current industry standard.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. It is also specified that the methods provided by this standard are no asrae valid when the clothing insulation exceed 1. It was first published inand since has been updated every three to six years. Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine.

Retrieved 24 November The heights need to be adjusted for standing persons. Retrieved 5 December When the number is under 20, at least 16 must reply for the survey to make the survey representative.

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. In general, body motion decreases the clothing insulation by pumping air through clothing.

When such measurement is not feasible, this standard provides four methods to determine the clothing insulation. For the first, it is not correct to use the average clothing insulation value to determine 55-2010 desired thermal conditions for 55–2010 occupants.
