EFFECT OF VISUAL STIMULI ON HUMAN THERMAL SENSATION OF SHORT TERM RESIDENTS IN AN OUTDOOR CAMPUS LANDSCAPE IN A TROPICAL CLIMATE
Keywords:Global warming, Thermal sensation, Thermal discomfort, Image evaluation, Visual stimuli
Climate change is one of the most serious issues in the recent world. Climate change is known as caused by the increase of carbon dioxide and many countries are forced to take measures. The first big measure was the Paris Agreement in 2015, and many countries joined the agreement. According to the agreement, many of the countries declared major shifts, such as the shit to electric vehicles in the car industry. The biggest concern about climate change at this moment is the rise of the temperature and it causes more death by heat stroke in summer. It also causes more usage of air conditioning systems and emits more carbon dioxide. It became a serious vicious circle. For that reason, it is important to analyze the mechanism of the human thermal sensation, which can be affected by the environmental history of the person, such as the residential area, the length of stay, and so on. In addition, it is expected that the effect of these histories especially appears strongly outdoors. For that reason, the outdoor experiment targeting short-term residents was carried out in Bangkok. For the experiment, 5 measuring points were selected. As a result, a different tendency was grasped at one of the measuring points with an open sky.
