Environments are assessed and environmental limits defined often only in terms of air temperature, which is insufficient; in most situations the interaction of air temperature with five other factors - radiant temperature; humidity; air movement; activity-generated metabolic heat; and clothing is central to that environment's evaluation.; In this book, Ken Parsons focuses on the principles and practice of human response to thermal environments. He incorporates psychology, physiology and environmental physics with an applied ergonomic approach. The book details important new developments in determining the thermal properties of clothing, computer modelling and computer-aided environmental design, and offers practical applications and case studies.
