Abstract:

A basic problem in the study of life support systems is to establish conditions under which human beings feel thermally comfortable. Since the condition for thermal comfort is influenced by various factors in a complex manner, a general equation for thermal comfort is very difficult to establish. In this work the feasibility region of the comfort equation of Fanger is studied by simulation. One of the purposes of this study is to illustrate how the systems techniques can be used to analyze complex models. Another purpose is to study the behavior of this equation so that it can be used as one of the constraints for the optimization studies of life support systems. Author
