In fact, the MRT of surrounding surfaces has a greater effect on thermal comfort than surrounding air temperature. 11. The MRT of a space has about 40% more of an influence on thermal comfort than does the DBT. 4° opposite change in air temperature to maintain the same thermal condition. 11 THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN VARYING MEAN RADIANT TEMPERATURES (MRT) OF SURROUNDING SURFACES IN A SPACE AND REQUIRED DRY BULB TEMPERATURE (DBT) TO MAINTAIN A TEMPERATURE SENSATION OF 70°F (21°C). 3°C), the occupant would feel a temperature sensation of 70°F (21°C).

Environmental Factors Affecting Thermal Comfort Besides the physiological adjustments made by the body, heat transfer from the body is influenced by several environmental factors. These factors affect an occupant’s temperature sensation in a space. They can be reasonably controlled by the designer of the space and usually play a larger role in body comfort than the physiological adjustments made by the body. Environmental factors affecting occupant comfort are typically grouped into four classifications.
