Article
The Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) and Predicted Percentage of Dissatisfied (PPD) are the most used indices for the assessment of thermal conditions in indoor environments. However, many times, the uncertainties associated with the calculation of both indices are not reported, may be because direct methods are not easily applicable to calculate it. The...
Article
Several software tools have been created to calculate the indices Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) and Predicted Percentage of Dissatisfied (PPD) by following Fanger’s method, which is valid only for atmospheric pressures close to 1 atm. The main objective of this work is to propose a formulation named PMV-PS for predicting an atmospheric pressure-sensiti...
Article
The thermal environment index Predicted Mean Vote is a descriptor largely applied to evaluate the comfort sensation of people in moderate environments. Software tools based on the Fanger's method have been created and used, which application is limited for the sea level atmospheric pressure. A procedure for estimating the index of thermal comfort o...
Article
Purpose The changes brought by Industry 4.0 go beyond transformations in the industrial environment. The increasingly frequent digitization and robotization of activities is not only restricted to the industrial environment, but also to people's daily routine. People spend a large part of their time inside buildings, and maintaining adequate Indoor...
Article
The Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) created by Fanger in the 70's is the most common model for estimating the thermal sensation in a group of individuals. The PMV contains some discrepancies related to the thermal reality of the environments where it is applied; thus, several researchers have developed alternative models over the past years in order to r...

The Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) has discrepancies in relation to the thermal reality of the environment; thus, adaptive models serve to improve this estimate. In this context, this research aimed to verify the performance of PMV and adaptive models under different conditions in Brazil from an analysis of variance and to further classify individuals i...
Conference Paper
The thermal human sensation index Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) has been largely adopted by researchers. The calculation procedure of PMV listed in ISO 7730 is included in most common dynamic simulation tools of buildings and air-conditioning systems. Its application is limited for buildings at or close to the sea level. A calculation procedure of a th...

The predicted mean vote (PMV) is the most widely used model around the world to assess thermal comfort in indoor environments. The year 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of the PMV model and also the year in which the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic. In this context, hospital environments and health professio...
Article
This paper aims to understand and characterize occupant behaviour from a perspective of air conditioner (AC) usage. Therefore, it analyses data collected via a questionnaire applied throughout the Brazilian territory, which resulted in 3,259 valid answers explored by non-parametric statistical methods. The main results obtained were: (i) 89% of int...

Participatory Ergonomics Programmes are generally considered to be Macroergonomics interventions in order to contribute to the continuous improvement of the work. However, over the past few decades, the industrial operation has been changing until reaching a new form of industrialisation. Now, the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0, begins...
Article
Background: Over the last few decades, there has been a concern to improve the quality of indoor work environments and increase energy efficiency as people spend much of their time in such settings. Objective: This study analyzed a group of women developing sedentary activities to determine the Actual Percentage of Dissatisfied (APD) in the envi...

The environment in which people live has a major influence on their activities. An environment that offers comfort is essential for better results. The feeling of comfort for each individual is a complicated arrangement of numerous factors, of which we can highlight thermal comfort. Based on this, the present study aimed to analyze the effects that...
