ASHRAE San Diego March 2019 Meeting



ASHRAE Standard 55 - Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy - has been modified to include the ISO PMV algorithm, equations and a computer program listing.  It has also been modified to include some adaptive response guidance for occupants in non-mechanically ventilated/air conditioned buildings.  These changes are considerable, and will allow the Standard to be used far more effectively than prior verisons, but also breaks new ground in several areas.  The possibility of Standard 55 being "Code-intended" exists and therefore explanations and examples must be produced to substantiate the application of Standard 55 for building and system design.  All of these issues are discussed in this presentation. 

Please note that this presentation is GBCI-approved for 1 CE hour (0920010411), as well as AIA-approved for 1 LU (SIMMONDS02). 

Presented By:

Dr. Peter Simmonds, PhD, ASHRAE Fellow & DL, shall present "Designing Buildings & Systems for Occupant Comfort". 

Dr. Simmonds is the Managing Director/Principal for Building and System Analytics, LLC, in the United Kingdom. 

Dr. Simmonds has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineer and one in Research & Development, from Reading Technical College, and a Master's degree from HTS, Den Bosch, the Netherlands, and a PhD from T.U Delft.  He has been a member of ASHRAE since 1989.  Dr. Simmonds is a recognized authority in the field of radiant heating systems and cooling systems.  The main goals of his research and applications have been to understand the heat transfer and performance of radiant systems for both heating and cooling.  His studies related to thermal performance of these systems led to a unique way to enhance these systems.  Publications of his work led to the development of radiant systems in the USA and are included in the ASHRAE handbooks.  He has received the Carter Bronze Medal from the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers in 1993. 

He has authored or co-authored more than 60 technical papers, articles and books, and currently is a Research Promotion Chair for the Southern California Chapter.  He is a member of several ASHRAE Technical Committees.  Dr. Simmonds also teaches Graduate and Post Graduate Architectural students at the Southern California Institute for Architects in Los Angeles.  Please welcome, Dr. Simmonds.
