Abstract: The present work deals with the determination of thermal comfort maps in large enclosures. Currently no specific approach is proposed to this end as building simulation relies on a nodal approach, where the computed scalar values (e.g. temperature, humidity, solar flux) are homogeneously distributed in zones whatever their size. We present here a method allowing for the calculation of a spatial distribution of thermal comfort, enhancing the classical approach by a precise determination of indoor solar fluxes and isothermal air velocities.
