ThermoAnalytics offers a passenger comfort module for RadTherm heat transfer simulation software. The module provides accuracy in predicting thermal sensation and thermal safety in realistic, asymmetrical environments, such as vehicle interiors, busses, and off-highway machinery with windows. The technology helps explore innovations for reducing A/C load by allowing engineers to test design changes and the effects on total human comfort in any location. Human thermoregulatory response to hot and cold environments such as blood perfusion and sweating are supported, and a library allows users to clothe passengers for the scenario. The company’s Energy Budget Analysis identifies the contributions of solar, exhaust, electronics, and human metabolism to the A/C load to improve climate control for passengers while increasing the fuel efficiency of commercial vehicles.
