Abstract


This study concerns to evaluate the thermal comfort conditions in the regional and sub-regional climatic scales in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, based on the human thermal comfort zoning for pattern-years ranked as rainier, rainy and less one. To find those results, it was necessary to use a climatic database of the National Institute of Meteorology (INMET), under which it undertook the construction of the database, which indexes Effective Temperature with Wind (VTE) have been allocated for autumn and winter seasons, and the index of Resultant Temperature (RT) for the spring and summer seasons only one. The tracks of thermal sensation were defined from the classes developed by Fanger (1972) and adapted to Sao Paulo capital for Maia and Gonçalves (2002). After scanning data, it was possible to found that in autumn, summer and spring seasons, these ones showed up as the seasons in which the determination of thermal sensation tracks in the study area were strongly influenced by climatic controls, such as altitude, continentality and maritimidade, meanwhile the winter season showed a strong influence of regional atmospheric circulation and dynamic.
