Abstract

We measured temperature and relative humidity in the house of a heatstroke patient and developed a body temperature simulation model for aged residents. The measurement results suggested that if air temperature is not excessively high, the indoor temperature of the previous day will persist until the following day. Moreover, we assessed the incidence risk of heatstroke in aged residents considering thermal performance of the housing envelope and living behavior. Results showed that reducing the quantity of radiation and increasing airflow can lower the incidence risk of heatstroke.
