Globe Temperature

Sponsored Links

The Resultant Temperature, also called the Globe Temperature, can be used as a more representative measure of temperature comfort than air temperature alone.

The Globe temperature can be calculated

tg = 0.5 tmr + 0.5 ta                            (1)

where

tg = globe (resultant) temperature (oC, oF)

tmr = mean radiation temperature (oC, oF)

ta = air temperature (oC, oF)

Globe temperatures can be measured with acceptable results in the centre of black globes with diameters ranging 25 - 150 mm.
