    Abstract

    This paper describes the basic features of a new advanced human thermal model (HTM), which is integrated with a building simulation tool. The thermal sensation calculation of the model has been validated using dynamical temperature step change test results. This new methodology seems promising, and significance of both internal (metabolic rate and clothing) and external (air and surface temperature levels, air velocity, and humidity) boundary conditions can be estimated. This is beneficial, for example, when evaluating new technical concepts for future energy-efficient buildings
