Abstract

In this study, thermal environment parameters and questionnaire survey data were analyzed statistically to obtain the influence weight of thermal environment parameters and individual factors on thermal comfort in different seasons in Harbin as the representative of the cold areas. The aim is to find the main influencing factors of thermal comfort in the cold regions of Northeast China and to propose optimization strategies. The average temperature in cool season has the greatest influence on thermal comfort, followed by wind speed. In middle season, clothing thermal resistance has the greatest influence on thermal comfort, followed by average radiation temperature. In hot season, the average radiation temperature has the greatest influence on thermal comfort, followed by wind speed and air temperature. Finally, the thermal comfort optimization strategy is put forward according to research results.
