UNI EN ISO 7730 (1997), about thermal - hygrometry comfort, is based on a static model where occupants are considered as passive subjects in thermal exchange. In the last years adaptive models were developed, where occupant acts with environment, reducing individual reaction to environmental stimuli. None of the proposed adaptive models found a full confirmation, therefore a revised version of 7730 is treating adaptation only in a generic way. In the present paper a multiple response questionnaire was elaborated, comprehensive of information for the static and adaptive model. It was applied in autumn in a classroom of the University of Perugia with 120 students and in winter in two classrooms (University of Pavia, with 130 students and University of Perugia, Terni, with 20 students). The thermal hygrometry conditions were monitored; finally questionnaire and experimental data were compared and a correlation for the static and the adaptive model is here proposed.

Abstract

UNI EN ISO 7730 (1997), about thermal - hygrometry comfort, is based on a static model where occupants are considered as passive subjects in thermal exchange. In the last years adaptive models were developed, where occupant acts with environment, reducing individual reaction to environmental stimuli. None of the proposed adaptive models found a full confirmation, therefore a revised version of 7730 is treating adaptation only in a generic way. In the present paper a multiple response questionnaire was elaborated, comprehensive of information for the static and adaptive model. It was applied in autumn in a classroom of the University of Perugia with 120 students and in winter in two classrooms (University of Pavia, with 130 students and University of Perugia, Terni, with 20 students). The thermal hygrometry conditions were monitored; finally questionnaire and experimental data were compared and a correlation for the static and the adaptive model is here proposed.
