Abstract
Thermal comfort studies are relevant for several areas of application such as in the aircraft and automotive areas as well as in building HVAC design. We demonstrate the integration of parametric multi-segmented human manikin models into an aircraft cabin for predicting the thermal comfort of passengers to heterogeneous thermal environments. The geometric model of a virtual human is derived from an ergonomic model which parametrically defines the armature model. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used for modelling fluid flow and for predicting local heat transfer between manikin surface elements and the environment. Quantitative evaluation is made through comparison of the obtained numerical results with internally available measurement data of former projects.
