Paper Title:
The Investigation of People Using Air Movement Actively in Summer in Hot-Humid Area of China
  Abstract

This paper is focused on the relationship between the motivations for people to actively use air movement and indoor climates, with an aim to determine the preferred levels of air movement for the occupants of naturally ventilated buildings in hot and humid climates in China. Based on 429 questionnaires collected in a background survey, 29 college students were chosen to join in the transverse survey. Totally 247 sets of raw data in 5 weeks were obtained. Primary results show that the main motivation of opening window changed from “fresh air” to “cool room and body” as the summer coming. The proportion of wanting more air movement increased as ET* rose, and the ambient and preferred air velocity increased linearly with ET* too.
