Standard 55

Standard 55

The ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) standard for thermal comfort, titled “Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy.” It takes into account all of the factors that affect human thermal comfort: air temperature, mean radiant temperature, relative humidity, air speed, local discomfort, and temperature variations over time, with the first two parameters being the most influential and, when combined, called operative temperature.

In recent years some research evaluated occupant's thermal comfort in real world conditions by means of field studies and compared comfort conditions from these field studies with thermal comfort conditions specified by ASHRAE Standard 55 (ASHRAE 2013).
Commenting on the updates, Abhijeet Pande, chair of the Standard 55 committee, said: "The updates to Standard 55-2017 are the result of a continuing series of modifications made based on new research, experience, and proposals from designers, manufacturers, and users.
(1-6) In addition, parallel research has been conducted on the state of today's lowered building loads on occupant comfort (ASHRAE RP-1515) (7) and on the use of ADPI to allow designers to prove compliance to ASHRAE Standard 55 at the much lower loads and resulting lower air supply rates found in today's indoor environments (RP 1546).
