Original Abstract

Evaluation of thermal comfort in non-uniform and transient environments is still a challenging topic, which requires knowledge of human physiology and perception of the thermal environment. We present the Matlab implementation of the Fiala thermophysiological model [1] coupled with the empirical model of human thermal comfort [2]. Both models are designed for non-uniform and transient environments, e.g. transport vehicle cabins. The original Fiala model was re-implemented with some modifications into commercial software as Theseus-FE or RadTherm and it has been widely used by the research community; e.g. to develop individualized models [3], [4], for coupling with the CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) [5] or for real-time applications [6]. Nowadays, [7] the Fiala model is one of the most advanced models in the field of the human thermophysiology and thermal comfort (index DTS - Dynamical Thermal Sensation).
