title Computing Outdoor Comfort Based on CBE Thermal Comfort Calculation for Ashrae-55
source ACADIA 2105: Computational Ecologies: Design in the Anthropocene [Proceedings of the 35th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-692-53726-8] Cincinnati 19-25 October, 2015), pp. 371-480
summary Environmental analysis as part of the initial design process, affords precise consideration of the bioclimatic human conditions within the environmental local context. The daily growth in inter alia knowledge of effective parameters in environmental conditions, quality weather data, human thermo-physiology studies all contribute to improving the potential for achieving a relatively accurate analyses of environmental conditions by overlaying and computing all the climatic and thermo-physiological data. This paper describes a digital method for examining different points in the same context by computing all the input data available to understand the corresponding human comfort condition levels, thus leading to better decision-making at early design stages. Information about the site, climate, human thermo-physiology and behavioral aspects among others are collected where each data parameter is matched and analyzed to the context of every node on the model through a series of specific computational algorithms. Thereafter, the data from the nodes are statistically cleaned, classified and integrated based on the CBE thermal comfort calculation for ASHRAE-55. The results obtained using this method, can be tailored according to the desired outcomes. The proposed method identifies effective factors for human comfort condition improvement for different points on the context. It also provides a means to priorities specific parameters so that they can be manipulated for optimal digital design solutions, ie. Aligned to the desired conditions in the specific parts of the site with the aim of optimize outdoor space usage.
