Original Abstract

In this paper authors refer about the Thermal Comfort Analyzer for the evaluation of thermal comfort using thermal manikin Newton. This software was developed in Matlab to automate the routines for evaluation of thermal comfort by ISO 14505-2 standard using the comfort zone diagrams. This method uses equivalent temperature as the objective criteria for investigation of thermal in non-uniform environment i.e. vehicle cabins. Thermal manikin Newton is able to measure thermal resistances of clothing, surface temperatures and heat fluxes for each of his 34 zones. Thermal Comfort Analyzer processed these measured data straightforwardly to obtain resulting local equivalent temperatures, which are visualized in the automatically generated comfort zone diagrams. The software has the post-processing mode for the evaluation of completed tests, the real-time mode for the visualization of the measurement and the calibration mode to identify thermal resistances of clothing.
