A second law based thermodynamic model to assess the human-thermal environment interaction and measure occupant thermal comfort is developed. It is based on the second-law analysis of an open system in which human elements are combined with the environmental variables to form a holistic model of humanenvironmental interaction. An objective thermal comfort index (OTCI) that combines air temperature, radiant (surface) temperature, relative humidity, metabolic activity, clothing, air velocity, anddoi:10.2495/jdn-v2-n4-310-318 fatcat:do6af5rz7rhfflsoeif6xxpacu
