The simulation is a typical floor of a multi-storey office building in tropical climate. The air-conditioned rooms are at corners and sides of the square floor plan, and the center is a collaboration space without air-con. The collab space is connected to outdoors to allow natural ventilation.
I’m studying the thermal comfort of the collab space by HB adaptive comfort recipe.
I noticed the radiant temperature in the space is high, so I ran a full OS simulation and found out the inside surface temperatures are high. In particular, I can’t explain why the internal windows are so hot.
The room temperature looks ok. The collab is about 30degC, the AC space 1 is 24degC.
The inside surface temperature of the window between collab and AC space 1, for example, is above 32degC. I was expecting it to be between 24 and 30 degC.
Another thing I can’t explain is the difference between the AC 1 and AC 6:
