The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE)  has launched an updated tool for predicting thermal comfort for occupants in a building. The software allows you to calculate the predicted thermal comfort for a human at a point in space,” said Bill Fleming, chair of ASHRAE’s publications committee. “All you need to do a comfort analysis is some basic information about the thermal environment you want to model and a few things about the person you want to put in that environment. The ASHRAE Thermal Comfort Tool, Version 2, is consistent with ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55-2010, Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy.”
