Description

calcATHB calculates three different indices related to the adaptive thermal heat balance framework

Usage

1
2
3
calcATHBpmv(trm, psych, ta, tr, vel, rh, met, wme)
calcATHBpts(trm, psych, ta, tr, vel, rh, met, wme, pb, ltime, ht, wt)
calcATHBset(trm, psych, ta, tr, vel, rh, met, wme, pb, ltime, ht, wt)

Arguments

trm

Running mean outdoor temperature in [degree C]

psych

factor related to fixed effect on perceived control

ta

a numeric value presenting air temperature in [degree C]

tr

a numeric value presenting mean radiant temperature in [degree C]

vel

a numeric value presenting air velocity in [m/s]

rh

a numeric value presenting relative humidity [%]

met

a numeric value presenting metabolic rate in [met]

wme

a numeric value presenting external work in [met]

pb

a numeric value presenting barometric pressure in [torr] or [mmHg]

ltime

a numeric value presenting exposure time in [minutes]

ht

a numeric value presenting body height in [cm]

wt

a numeric value presenting body weight in [kg]

Details

All variables must have the same length 1. For the calculation of several values use function calcComfInd.

Value

Depending on the type chosen calcATHB returns the following item:

ATHBpmv

pmv value adapted through the ATHB appoach

ATHBset

set value adapted through the ATHB appoach

ATHBpts

pts value adapted through the ATHB appoach
