Room Sensible Heat Factor - RSHF

The Room Sensible Heat Factor - RSHF - is defined as the sensible heat load in the room divided by the total heat load in room

The Room Sensible Heat Factor - RSHF - expresses the ratio between sensible heat load and total heat load in the room. It can be expressed as:

RSHF = Qsr / Qtr         (1)

where

RSHF = room sensible heat factor

Qsr = sensible heat load in the room (kW, Btu/hr)

Qtr = total heat load in the room (kW, Btu/hr)

(1) can be modified to:

RSHF = cp (tr - ti) / (hr - hi)         (2)

where

cp = specific heat capacity of air (kJ/kg.oC)

tr = room temperature (oC)

ti = inlet temperature (oC)

hr = room enthalpy (kJ/kg)

hi = inlet enthalpy (kJ/kg)

Example - Room Sensible Heat Factor - RSHF

The sensible heat generation in a room is 4 kW. The latent heat generation is 1.4 kW.

The Room Sensible Heat Factor can be calculated as:

RSHF = (4 kW) / ((4 kW) + (1.4 kW))

= 0.75
