The project also aims to build and enhance the capacity of LGUs in incorporating thermal environment conditions in planning and development towards the attainment of UN Sustainable Development Goal (particularly Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable)
The project also aims to build and enhance the capacity of local government units (LGUs) in incorporating thermal environment conditions in planning and development toward the attainment of UN Sustainable Development Goal (particularly Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable).
"So, we developed a method of measuring adaptation to the thermal environment independent of body size.
We are also developing models for mean radiant temperature along pedestrian routes to provide a comprehensive assessment of the thermal environment. At the current stage of model development, we have applied widely used thresholds for the duration and intensity of heat exposure for pedestrian activity based on fixed-point estimates of the Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) index.
The thermoneutral zone for layer hens to express their production potential in the thermal environment is when the temperature is between 21 and 28 AdegC (Castilho et al., 2015) and the air relative humidity is between 50 and 70% (Tinoco, 2001).

When CFRP composite with epoxy matrix is exposed to thermal environment, complex chemical and physical processes including pyrolysis of matrix, formation and growth of pores and char, oxidation of residual char and carbon fibers, thermal expansion and contraction, matrix cracking, and delamination may occur [36].
Controlled-environment chambers and calorimeters are used to investigate the impact of the thermal environment on livestock.
The guidance says that it's perfectly reasonable to expect people to adapt their behaviour to cope with their thermal environment, eg adding or removing clothing, choice of heating, moving to or away from cooling/heat sources etc.
It is defined as "that expression of mind which expresses satisfaction with the thermal environment" by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning (ASHRAE) [14].
This study mainly focuses on data-collection for the thermal environment, but occupants could also set the shading devices based on their preference while the electric lights are automatically dimmed based on a commercial lighting system.
