Simulation Study of Human Thermal Comfort Indices 2001-01-2267

This study investigates the complexities associated with quantifying human thermal comfort using indices. A detailed review of the literature is first performed. The uncertainties associated with comfort modeling are then highlighted. Possible indices are developed and evaluated using integrated human-suit-PLSS (Portable Life Support System) simulations developed at the University of Missouri. The study forms part of a larger project aimed at developing automatic thermal controllers for NASA space suits.
