Abstract: In the modern workplaces, it is important to consider both the thermal requirements as well as the energy demand. For a sustainable design of the built environment, it is crucial to ensure that the conditioned air reaches the occupants in the most effective manner. In this paper, typical modes of air distribution, such as the ceiling supply and under-floor supply systems are investigated by using a breathing thermal manikin in a controlled environmental chamber in a tropical climate context. In this chamber, the thermal manikin is exposed to environmental conditions which are provided by ceiling supply and under-floor supply system respectively. The room air temperature distribution and the thermal manikin's responses are detected to describe how the air distribution modes affect the room thermal environment and occupants' thermal sensation.
