Dry-bulb temperature

The dry-bulb temperature is the temperature of air measured by a thermometer freely exposed to the air but shielded from radiation and moisture. In construction, it is an important consideration when designing a building for a certain climate. Nall (as cited in "References") called it one of "the most important climate variables for human comfort and building energy efficiency".
