thermalcomfort factors. There are two methods for the thermal evaluation of enclosed spaces, in the form of laboratory and on-site measurements. In this case, based on the constraints of the heated window glass and the equipment used, it was given that

There are several outdoor microclimatic simulation software tools in use. The current research aims to identify some of the most prominent computer-based tools based on their capacity of predicting a significant number of variables and compare them in order to establish their differences. This article provides an overview of the applications of computational fluid dynamics in outdoor performance simulation, focused on three topics: general criteria, specific outputs, strategies, and elements can be investigated by the tool. The results have shown that ENVI-met tool is capable of predicting and simulating the set microclimate variables.
ISO 2005, ISO 7730:2005(E), Ergonomics of the thermal environment — Analytical determination and interpretation of thermalcomfort using calculation of the PMV and PPD indices and local thermalcomfort criteria
has been the major focus of thermal design [ 3 ]-[ 5 ]. Thermalcomfort is the point of satisfaction with the thermal environment, i.e. when the great majority of people are not feeling either too hot or too cold. Thermal discomfort is where people
