Comparative Evaluation of Indoor Thermal Comfort for Green and Conventional Office Buildings Conference Proceeding uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • A comparative analysis was conducted between two office buildings, one constructed using green design and the other erected using traditional building construction methods. As part of the analysis, thermal comfort indicators (using the Predicted Mean Value of Fanger model) were monitored by recording equivalent temperature, air temperature, and relative humidity at each site. The study tests whether office buildings constructed using different design approaches have significantly different indoor thermal environment. The results of the comparative analysis indicate that the green building provides better thermal comfort than the conventional building.
