Both building performance and occupants' thermal comfort are influenced by heat conduction, convection and radiation as well as condensation/evaporation. This paper presents an analysis of thermal comfort in buildings subjected to simultaneous heat and moisture transfer using numerical techniques. A model based on computational fluid dynamics has been developed for predicting the indoor thermal environment. Assessment is made of the effects of radiation heat transfer and moisture condensation on the accuracy of predicted indoor thermal comfort.
