The thermal manikin is normally introduced at indoor environmental measurements to obtain detailed information on thermal comfort and air quality around a person. This paper deals with the opposite situation where manikins are introduced as sources and obstacles in order to obtain reasonable boundary conditions in experiments with the indoor environment. In other words, how will people influence the surroundings instead of how will the surroundings influence people? The use of thermal manikins in an experiment will of course take both situations into account, however, in some experiments the manikins are used mainly as sources and obstacles.
