Abstract: For the surface temperature of clothing, body surface temperature, and detailed temperatures and heat flow phenomena of soles contacting the floor, results of measurement experiments using human subjects were compared with results of simulations conducted by CFD using a thermal mannequin. The surface temperature of clothes, body surface temperature, and conduction heat quantity at soles contacting the floor of the numerical thermal mannequin generally agreed with results of actual measurements. Consequently, it was confirmed that warmer environments considering human body in the floor heated room can be reproduced generally by CFD analysis using a thermal mannequin considering contact thermal conduction.
