Many human thermal indices such as PMV (Predicted mean vote), PET (Physiological Equivalent Temperature), PT (Perceived Temperature), UTCI (Universal Thermal Climate Index) and SET (Standard Effective Temperature), have been developed to assess human thermal conditions.
The services for the position advertised here are an operational complete measure of a passable test facility for thermal climate simulations (with connected control station).
There is a set of typical applications on the calculation of thermal comfort indices, the standard effective temperature (SET) [3], the Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) [4, 5], the perceived temperature (PT) [6], and the physiologically equivalent temperature (PET) [7-9].
The latest insights are represented in the universal thermal climate index (UTCI) (Blzejczyk et al.
The French company has expertise in the technologies required to develop driving assistance applications (sensors, cameras and laser scanners) as well as connectivity, human-machine interface and thermal climate control solutions.
As discussed in greater detail below, a CDD and HDD baseline value is determined (a) for each of the nine thermal climate zones and (b) for each of the nineteen thermal climate zones with moisture subzones specified in ASHRAE Standard 169-2013.
There is an overarching set of thermal climate zones that are used as the basis for specifying the building envelope requirements and some of the mechanical requirements.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of different acclimation temperatures on thermal preference, to learn the critical thermal limit of the adult marine snail Tegula regina to obtain an estimate of the optimum temperature for its growth, and to assess the organism's ability to adapt to different thermal regimes along the coast of Baja California and the possible effects of thermal climate change.
The Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI) is a comprehensive model fitted to assess human thermal comfort in outdoor environments and represents the state-of-the-art of outdoor thermal comfort indices [16].
The logical way of investigating how the thermal climate is perceived in buildings is to ask people to describe the thermal climate with the use of questionnaires and rating scales.
In fact, the most notable change in the thermal climate during the greenhouse enhancement is that the coldest air masses of winter - in Siberia and North America - have warmed slightly, while the only change overall has been a tendency towards reduced year-to-year variability.
