Human Comfort, Air Distribution, Indoor Thermal Environment


The concern over the comfort in air conditioned environment and associated energy consumption has been increased since last few years. This is due to the change in climatic conditions a little bit and more on desire of comfort in occupied spaces for better comfort. The conventional means of providing heating, ventilation and air conditioning requires huge amount of electricity. The energy consumption in air conditioning has a major part of total energy consumption. Engineers and designers are in search of alternative ways of air conditioning and scope of energy savings in the conventional methods of air conditioning. Air distribution is an essential part of air conditioning which ensures the establishment of comfortable indoor environment in the conditioned spaces. The conditioned air is supplied into the conditioned space at a particular velocity and temperature under controlled conditioned. It is the main part of air distribution to design the suitable location and position of the supply air diffuser and return air vent so that desired indoor thermal environment could be established. In this paper review of literature on air distribution and thermal comfort is presented. The need of work on air distribution methods and comfort studies are found gaining interest among academics and researchers.
