Abstract

Previous work (Gado and Mohamed, 2009) investigated the subjective response of occupants inside nineteen primary schools in Egypt with regard to their state of thermal comfort. e results of this work, suggested that the majority of occupants were thermally discomfort for most of the time during the academic year. This paper presents an objective assessment of the thermal comfort inside three case studies out of the nineteen schools previously studied. ese three case studies represent the most common school prototypes built by the General Authority of Educational Buildings (GAEB) in Egypt. e three prototypes are: Single Row Linear Form (SRLF), Double Row Linear Form (DRLF), and L Form (LF). Human and environmental factors affecting thermal comfort were monitored during the hottest month of the academic year. Results suggested that thermal performance of classrooms in terms of thermal comfort was poor, justifying by such the results of the subjective assessment previously published.
