Abstract

This paper researches thermal comfort of the town of Ugljevik in Bosnia and Herzegovina for the year 2021, by analyzing bioclimatic index Wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT). The analysis is a continuation of the research on the bioclimatic conditions of the area of Semberija plain and Majevica mountain, which has so far covered only the city of Bijeljina, as the most urbanized area of the researched space. All five categories of the WBGT index are present during a year, with different number of days for each category. For thermal comfort the most important factors should be observed during summer months of the year, June, July and August, due to the highest number of days in categories with values over 28, that are dangerous for human organism and outdoor activities. The accent in this research was put on the number of categories that are present during one month, but also during just one day, by using mean, maximum and minimal temperatures for calculations. This type of research allows us to see how many different categories one day has.
