Abstract : Nude men were exposed to a range of ambient temperatures and were brought to a condition of thermal comfort by adjustment of the incident radiation. The mean skin temperature associated with comfort was found to be different for each combination of ambient temperature and incident radiation. It was evident that mean skin temperature, per se, was not a dependable criterion of thermal comfort. (Author)
