EVALUATION OF THERMAL COMFORT
The evaluation of the thermal comfort, as the degree of well-being perceived by the occupants in the space analyzed, must consider several factors including the thermal characteristics of the elements of the border (the enclosure), the sources of heat and steam inside, the climate outside, the characteristics of the HVAC system etc.
The level of wellbeing depends on complex sensations perceived by the human body and each subject can be more or less sensitive to each of the factors that constitute it.
It follows then that the customer should consider very carefully the achievement of thermal living comfort in his works and must work with designers, which should be able to manage the project in all the factors that affect the ENCLOSURE and the SYSTEM.
Bcool Engineering bases its assessments and planning choices on objective calculation parameters that arise from the relationships between the functioning of the human body and the feeling of thermal comfort, according to UNI EN ISO 7730. This type of evaluation is developed in dynamic way and in case of particularly accurate analysis, a computational fluid dynamics (see par. ANALYSIS CFD) can be applied.
