Thermal comfort is the condition of mind that expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment and is assessed by subjective evaluation (ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55). The human body can be viewed as a heat engine where food is the input energy. The human body will generate excess heat into the environment, so the body can continue to operate.

Thermoregulation is the ability of an organism to keep its body temperature within certain boundaries, even when the surrounding temperature is very different. A thermoconforming organism, by contrast, simply adopts the surrounding temperature as its own body temperature, thus avoiding the need for internal thermoregulation. [Table adapted from Environmental Science in Building – Randall McMullan] Clothing – helps us maintain a more constant body temperature by providing a thermal insulator. We wear varied clothing at different times of the year and our buildings must be adaptable to .

Improved blood flow model: Human body thermal regulation is mainly achieved by regulating blood flow, so a realistic blood flow model is important for any dynamic model of human thermal is by vasoconstriction and vasodilation that the body regulates blood distribution in order to control skin temperature and increase or decrease heat loss to the by: 2 Adaptation and Thermal Environment 19 The passive system of the Fiala model (Fiala et al. , ) is a multi- segmental, multi-layered representation of the human body with spatial subdivisions.
