Angle factors between a human body and rectangular planes are calculated by a numerical model. The method presented in this paper, which predicts the thermal radiation field in a space, is based on a numerical integration method proposed in a previous paper. To confirm the validity of the calculated results, predicted angle factors for both standing and seated persons are compared with those from experiments. It was found that the predicted figures matched well with those from experiments except those between the human body and the front floor. Angle factors between surface parts of the human body and rectangular planes including the floor are also discussed here.
