Abstract

This study compares the impact of air distribution on the thermal plume above a human body in indoor environment. Three sets of measurements are conducted in a full-scale test room with different ventilation conditions. One breathing thermal manikin standing in the room is used to simulate the human body. Long-time average air velocity profiles at locations closely above the manikin are taken to identify the wandering thermal plume.
