Question details

2)   Who ultimately determines if a room environment is thermally comfortable?

3)   Physically, what determines if a room environment is thermally comfortable?

4)   What heat transfer/exchange processes affect the thermal comfort condition of a building occupant? List the factors affecting each heat transfer/exchange process.

5)   What is the physical meaning of the operative temperature and effective temperature?

6)   How is the ASHRAE thermal comfort zone determined? Will it ensure that 100% of the building occupants be thermally comfortable?

7)   What is the advantage of micro-environmental control? How can it also reduce building energy consumption?
