THERMAL DAIRY
By Carlos Val

Background
2

In order to achieve a better understanding of the concept of Adaptive Thermal comfort I have recorded my thermal sensation by an hour intervals during a week. At this time, the relative humidity and temperature of my surrounding environment was been recorded by a sensor carried by me at all the time, every 900seconds.

Background
3

A further thermal study of my living space was developed at the same time but carried out for a longer period. The data obtained from this survey is shown in the following slides.

Errata
There is a gap between the date of the data loggers and the current date. (starting date 9/1/2013 -- current date 10/2/2013). Being aware of this anecdotic incident, and once the required corrections are done, there is nothing else to comment about it.
