Abstract

In the recent year, human thermal comfort has been claimed to be an adaptive behaviour and controllable environment. Clothing is a controllable personal environment
and it should play an important part in built environmental designs. The present study conducted an analysis that was divided into three sections. The first section examined the
human thermal comfort evaluation on thermal balance equation. The second section described each term of thermal balance equation. The third section reviewed the role of
clothing in parts of heat transfer. This review recommend that clothes property such as evaporative heat transfer resistance of clothing should be included into the thermal
balance for thermal comfort estimation.
