Designed to inform developers and project managers on the current indoor environment of a building, a TM52 assessment is carried out to ensure it meets the right standards set.
The TM52 assessment sets the standards for the limit of thermal comfort and will look at:
- 1 Introduction
- 2 Comfort and discomfort
- 2.1 Our thermal sense
- 2.2 How can we judge if a building is overheating?
- 2.3 Behaviour and discomfort
- 3 Predicting discomfort
- 3.1 The basics
- 3.2 Investigating and modelling thermal comfort
- 3.3 Predicted mean vote (pmv) and predicted percentage dissatisfied (ppd) using the heat balance model of comfort
- 3.4 Other considerations
- 4 The basis of comfort standards
- 4.1 Existing standards
- 4.2 Problems for standards
- 5 Risk of overheating
- 5.1 Problems with a single temperature overheating limit
- 5.2 Discomfort as a function of a deviation from comfort temperature
- 6 CIBSE recommendations for identifying overheating
- 6.1 CIBSE guidance
- 6.2 Overheating in mechanically cooled buildings
