Local draft experiments were conducted to establish the overall thermal sensation prediction model under low pressure environment. Head, chest, hand, and ankle were exposed to local airflow under three pressure environments: 1 atm, 0.87 atm, and 0.74 atm, respectively. The skin temperature was measured and the subjective questionnaires were collected. The results showed that in cooler environment, the mean skin temperature decreased with the decrease of pressure, and people maybe more sensitive. When the environmental pressure decreased, the overall thermal sensation decreased correspondingly. Compared with the normal pressure condition, as the pressure decreased, the weight of local thermal sensation on overall thermal sensation changed a little. The weight of chest decreased while the weight of hands increased. When exposed to local draft, the four body parts showed similar influence on the overall thermal sensation under lower pressure conditions. Based on influence of pressure, temperature, and local draft speed, the overall thermal sensation prediction model for each body part was established respectively. The results indicated that the predicted values were highly correlated with the measured values. The models could be used to predict thermal sensation of people who are exposed to local draft in low pressure environment.
