Abstract

A method using three thermal comfort meters and the effectiveness of a thermal manikin with variable skin temperatures for measuring the comfort of thermal environment in vehicle occupant compartment are described. The thermal manikin is shown to enable an overall evaluation of 6 elements of heat, as well as determination of comfort/discomfort due to localized thermal environments. A numerical manikin is being developed, which can be used to evaluate thermal environments with perspiration taken into account, which is impossible with the thermal manikin.
