INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THERMAL AND VISUAL (DIS-)COMFORT AND RE LATED ADAPTIVE ACTIONS THROUGH CLUSTER ANALYSES

M. Schweiker, A. Wagner

Abstract: The objectives of this study are to analyze interactions between thermal and visual influences on comfort and behaviors and to present a clustering method based on the results of mixed-effect regression analyses for simulation and control purposes. Results show a) interactions between thermal and visual influences on comfort and behavior, b) the advantage of this method in creating independent and distinct patterns related to thermal comfort, visual comfort, and occupant behavior, and c) that the relationship between clusters e.g. between clusters of thermal and visual comfort or between thermal comfort and heating behavior is not significant.
