Abstract

This report describes the results of research completed to date during Phases I and II of the project. The report is organized in terms of the major type of work that have taken place. These are: 1) Laboratory studies of air movement and comfort. 2) Review of the influences of humidity on health, particularly as they impact evaporative cooling and naturally cooled architecture. 3) Development of a computer model of the human body sensitive to localized effects of air movement, localized radiant feilds, and other environmental influences. 4) Assistance with the workshops to create compressor-free house designs.
