Within the European project - Friendly Heating - a local heating system is designed. The main goal is not to heat the monumental churches themselves, in order to prevent damage to valuable art works and the building itself. The idea is to provide a thermal comfort zone for the people in the pew using radiant heat sources. Measurements in a climate room are used to a) evaluate the local climate created by the bench heating system and b) evaluate the CFD model. The results will be used in ongoing research on the prediction of the indoor climate in a church under real climate conditions.
