Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Thermal comfort

His primary scientific interests are in Thermal comfort, Architectural engineering, Field, Built environment and Environmental quality. His Thermal comfort study combines topics in areas such as Thermal, Indoor air quality and Adaptability. His studies examine the connections between Adaptability and genetics, as well as such issues in Atmospheric sciences, with regards to Meteorology and Mean radiant temperature.

Yingxin Zhu combines subjects such as Certification Level, Mixed mode, Mixed-mode ventilation and Mode with his study of Architectural engineering. His study in Field is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Neutral temperature, Operations management, Passive cooling, Air conditioning and Automotive engineering. His Environmental quality research includes elements of Energy, Data collection and ASHRAE 90.1.

His most cited work include:

  • Progress in thermal comfort research over the last twenty years (244 citations)
  • Individual difference in thermal comfort: A literature review (146 citations)
  • A study on the effects of thermal, luminous, and acoustic environments on indoor environmental comfort in offices (146 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Thermal comfort, Meteorology, Architectural engineering, Thermal and Thermal sensation. The Thermal comfort study combines topics in areas such as Airflow, Air conditioning, Simulation, ASHRAE 90.1 and Relative humidity. Yingxin Zhu has researched ASHRAE 90.1 in several fields, including Environmental quality, Mode, Database and Indoor air quality.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Climatology, Pedestrian and Mean radiant temperature in addition to Meteorology. His work carried out in the field of Architectural engineering brings together such families of science as Quality, Field, Demand factor, Natural ventilation and Built environment. His Thermal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Heat transfer and Atmospheric sciences.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Thermal comfort (60.50%)
  • Meteorology (24.37%)
  • Architectural engineering (19.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Thermal comfort (60.50%)
  • Thermal sensation (14.29%)
  • Architectural engineering (19.33%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Yingxin Zhu mainly focuses on Thermal comfort, Thermal sensation, Architectural engineering, Thermal and Environmental quality. His Thermal comfort study is concerned with the larger field of Meteorology. His Thermal sensation study incorporates themes from Geotechnical engineering and Microclimate.

Yingxin Zhu interconnects Environmental data, Energy intensity, Efficient energy use and Air quality index in the investigation of issues within Architectural engineering. His research in Thermal intersects with topics in Neutral temperature, Scale and Radiant heating. In his study, Certification Level and Quality is strongly linked to Energy, which falls under the umbrella field of Environmental quality.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review of operating performance in green buildings: Energy use, indoor environmental quality and occupant satisfaction (70 citations)
  • Bridging the gap: The need for a systems thinking approach in understanding and addressing energy and environmental performance in buildings: (19 citations)
  • Indoor environmental quality of green office buildings in China: Large-scale and long-term measurement (18 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Civil engineering

Yingxin Zhu focuses on Thermal comfort, Architectural engineering, Cognitive psychology, Adaptation and Post-occupancy evaluation. Yingxin Zhu is studying Thermal sensation, which is a component of Thermal comfort. In general Architectural engineering, his work in Green building is often linked to Variance linking many areas of study.

Yingxin Zhu integrates many fields, such as Cognitive psychology, Thermal, Thermal perception, Clothing insulation, Current and Feeling, in his works. His Post-occupancy evaluation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Degree, Reliability, Scale and Rating scale. His Building design course of study focuses on Built environment and Systems thinking.
