Thermal Comfort Resources
Here are papers and links from significant figures in Thermal Comfort eg. Dr Richard de Dear, Dr Gail Brager, Dr Richard Aynsley, Dr Stephen Szokolay:


1. An adaptive model of thermal comfort Drs Richard de Dear, Gail Brager & Donna Cooper, 1997


2. Options for Assessment of Thermal Comfort/Discomfort for Aggregation into NatHERS Star Ratings - by Drs Aynsley & Szokolay, 1998 - see file at left.

This report was commissioned to provide guidance for the NatHERS comfort approach, and has a good overview of thermal comfort approaches .

There is a minor typo - p 27, where the dT should be 6*(v - .2) - 1.6 * (v - .2)^2, and it should be also noted that the equation does not account for the influence of humidity above a temperature of 28 degrees C.

3. More to come...
