Description

Topic: Using ASHRAE Standard 55 to Identify Thermal Discomfort Probabilities Due to Enclosure Designs

Next to sound, thermal discomfort is the second leading occupant complaint due to flawed indoor climates. The culprits are building codes and enclosure designs followed by poor HVAC solutions. This presentation will provide the background in thermal comfort science and Standards concluding with a case study using the ASHRAE 1383 Tool to show Standard 55 non-compliance/compliance based on enclosure design and choices in HVAC systems.



Venue: Event will be held in the upstairs function room at The Boar's Head pub on Capel St.

Arrival from 6:30pm, with talk set to commence from 7pm. Free finger food will be available, and drinks can be purchased at the bar before the talk. There will be time afterwards for Q&A, and networking.
