The following article describes an extract of the results of experimental investigations on the topic of thermal comfort as a function of radiation asymmetry. The investigations were carried out in the climate chamber [1, 2] of the TU Dresden with the help of subjects. The radiation asymmetry was imprinted by subdividing the climate chamber into two vertically superimposed half-rooms, one of which was heated and the other cooled. In this way, 46 experiments on the heating or cooling ceiling

The subject assessed the room climate much more negatively than the ISO 7730 [3] would predict according to the state of the art.
