Abstract: This study aims to develop a thermal comfort prediction model suitable for naturally ventilated residential buildings located in the tropical climate. A total of 1063 data were collected through field survey in Singapore and Indonesia. From the statistical analysis, some discrepancies were observed amongst subjective responses of what people have voted for thermal comfort, preference, and acceptability. Under hot and humid tropical condition, people were found to prefer cooler environment as compared to what the neutral temperature has indicated. Fuzzy logic concept was used as an alternative to develop a more accurate thermal comfort model for the tropics. The complexities of the human cognitive process and the vagueness of linguistic expression were considered in defining fuzzy membership function. The fuzzy logic model was found to be more appropriate to predict human thermal comfort perception.
