 ENVI-met Biomet is a post-processing tool to calculate human thermal comfort indices based on your simulation data.  ENVI-met Biomet is a post-processing tool to calculate human thermal comfort indices based on your simulation data. 
 It directly interacts with the ENVI-met output and lets you interactivly set the persons parameter, the Thermal Comfort Index and the range of calculation. It directly interacts with the ENVI-met output and lets you interactivly set the persons parameter, the Thermal Comfort Index and the range of calculation.

 In the recent version 1.5, Biomet supports **PMV/PPD** (Predicted mean vote), **PET* **(Physiologal Equivalent Temperature),​ **UTCI* ** (Universal Thermal Climate Index) and **SET* ** (Standard Effective Temperature),​ but more are likely to be integrated.

 +===== Which Comfort Index shall I use? =====
 +This is the big and holy question. The fact, that BioMet already supports 4 of them gives a clue, that there is no generally accepted answer. ​
 +We suggest reading the paper by Fischereit and Schlünzen (2018) [[https://​link.springer.com/​article/​10.1007/​s00484-018-1591-6|(Paper in International Journal of Biometeorology,​ Open Access)]] for a detailed discussion on this matter. ​
