Abstract

Thermal comfort in the room is achieved by maintaining temperatures between 20 °C to 25 °C, as a result of air temperature. The main objective of the present work to study the thermal comfort in office room by changing the design of inlet and outlet duct position using computational fluid dynamics analysis. The present review includes various factors related with thermal comfort of office room, like temperature and air flow inside the office room, that affect the thermal comfort for the occupants. Areas in which additional information is required are identified and comments are made regarding future research directions. From the above literature study, it has been observed that in the field of thermal comfort for the office room lot of work have been seen in worldwide and still going on so there is a scope to work on this field.
