Berücksichtigung der vom menschlichen Körper absorbiertern kuzwelligen Solarstrahlung bei der Beschreibung der thermischen Behaglichkeit in Gebäuden

Frank Otto

Abstract: Currently the thermal comfort of buildings is evaluated according to standards and recommendations (DIN 1946, DIN EN 15251 etc.). The procedures are based on significant factors like air temperature, radiative temperature, clothing factor, activities of people etc. However, the impact of the solar radiation on the human body is not regarded. A new model to evaluate the thermal comfort taking this solar radiation into account was developed by means of an iterative approach. Parameters of this model are the standard of the thermal insulation and the heat storage capacity of the building, the percentage of glazings etc. The procedure was successfully proved at different situations. 103 IBPSA For practical application, the model can simply be included in traditional procedures for calculating the thermal comfort.
