THERMAL COMFORT IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED TRACTOR CAB.

Abstract

Thermal comfort predicted by P. O. Fanger's equation for 16 tractor cab occupants is presented and discussed. Results show that Fanger's equation for Predicted Mean Vote does predict comfort in a tractor cab for summer conditions. Pertinent data necessary to determine comfort was measured each half hour. Predicted Mean Votes were calculated from the data collected for each subject and were analyzed.
