Assistant Professor Timothy Adekunle's research paper was peer-reviewed and selected as one of the papers for presentation at the just concluded 2018 Windsor Conference on "Rethinking Comfort" at Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, UK.
The 10th Windsor conference was held from April 12-15. The conference reported on, and explored, a range of approaches to the understanding of conditions which result in thermal acceptability, comfort and indeed delight. But it also considered the role of social contexts, and the thermal conditions and limits on which the health and survival of populations are predicated and the ways in which the well informed design of buildings can enhance the well-being of populations.
The paper focused on occupants' comfort and heat stress in cross-laminated timber (CLT) school buildings during the occupied and unoccupied periods in summer. The peer-reviewed paper was also published in the proceedings of the 2018 Windsor Conference (http://windsorconference.com/proceedings/).
