The objective of this work is to evaluate the human thermal response in occupied spaces subjected to direct solar radiation. In this study, done in a full scale compartment equipped with an airconditioning system, a thermal-manikin (to simulate the human body posture), a multi-nodal human
thermal comfort model (to evaluate the thermal comfort level), an interior climate analyser (to measure the environmental variables around the occupant) and an external sun simulating lamps (to reproduce the direct solar radiation), were used. The manikin is equipped with heating, circulation, control, transpiration and respiration systems.
