Meteorological requirements on air conditioning in relation to human habitat for comfort
Weekly means of effective temperature -ET (an index of heat stress on human body) during the 24 hours of the day, have been computed, utilising hourly dry and wet bulb temperature and the wind speed based on data for a ten year period (1957-66). This has been done in respect of a major cities, viz., Bombay, Calcutta, Madras and New Delhi. Adopting a 25 deg. C ET as the lower limit of thermal discomfort, diagrams have been prepared, analysed and discussed. Role of onset of monsoon conditions in ameliorating the discomfort have been evaluated. The utility of the diagrams in the light of meteorological requirements for air-conditioning, has been determined a ad discussed.
