Abstract: The importance of the cooling effect of air movement to thermal comfort in hot humid climates is widely acknowledged, however theoretical models of this effect have not been tested in a residential setting. An 11 month longitudinal comfort study of 20 houses in Darwin, Australia yielded 1360 thermal comfort vote responses with corresponding indoor climatic measurements, including air speed. A model to describe the cooling effect of air movement was developed using these data. This model allows for the benefits of natural ventilation and fan use to be accounted for when assessing the indoor thermal environments of climatically designed houses in hot humid conditions.
