Beschreibungen

This book focuses on human adaptive thermal comfort in the building environment and the balance between reducing building air conditioning energy and improving occupants’ thermal comfort. It examines the mechanism of human thermal adaptation using a newly developed adaptive heat balance model, and presents pioneering findings based on an on online survey, real building investigation, climate chamber experiments, and theoretical models. The book investigates three critical issues related to human thermal adaptation: (i) the dynamics of human thermal adaptation in the building environment; (ii) the basic rules and effects of human physiological acclimatization and psychological adaptation; and (iii) a new, adaptive, heat balance model describing behavioral adjustment, physiological acclimatization, psychological adaptation, and physical improvement effects. Providing the basis for establishing a more reasonable adaptive thermal comfort model, the book is a valuable reference resource for anyone interested in future building thermal environment evaluation criteria.
Introduction.- The dynamics of thermal comfort expectation.- The dynamic process of thermal adaptation in buildings.- Indoor climate and thermal physiological acclimization.- Psycological aspect of thermal comfort adaptation.- Development of adaptive heat balance model.- Conclusion and future prospect.
Dr. Maohui Luo is currently a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Built Environment (CBE) at UC Berkeley. His research interests cover the topics of adaptive thermal comfort, personal comfort devices, and indoor air movement, with the goal of creating sustainable, comfort and healthy buildings efficiently. His Ph.D. research at Tsinghua University focuses on human thermal adaptation in buildings, which received the honor of “Excellent Ph.D. Thesis” in 2017 from Tsinghua University.
