Abstract

Investigations of thermal comfort in the aircraft cabin have been conducted in an aircraft mock up with 70 seats, and the objective and subjective data from these comfort experiments have been analysed. Therefore realistic air ventilation scenarios inspired by real flight situations have been chosen as test conditions. Results from these two investigations show differences for the subjective well-being which are related to the climate scenarios, season (ambient temperature), seat line and gender. The results demonstrate the quality of the instruments utilized and also confirm the usefulness of the combination of objective and subjective measurements for the description of climate conditions and for the enhancement of thermal comfort in an aircraft cabin.
