The overwhelming qualities cultural and local values of architectural sights in kashan historical textures is the main reason for the presence and the activities of their inhabitants in thermal comfort. The continuation of life the sheer variety of energy & activity in its historical texture have made possible the presence of a large population in the open-air & semi-open-space of this place. This situation-the existence of such spaces in the neighboring buildings-as well as the architectural beauty & variety have made assessment of human thermal comfort a necessity. This research first studies & assessed the range of human thermal comfort via the index physiological equivalent temperature (PET) and second presents a new method to predict the function of operative variables in the possibility of human thermal comfort. For this purpose 17 sites or locations in the historical texture were examined from Shahrivar 6th to Shahrivar 21th in 1397. In addition to library study, cultural presence in these textures, field study, the response of 778 people among the inhabitants and tourists to the questionnaires as well as climate data were simultaneously obtained. At the next stage after the estimation of dress rate through Delta log 70 software (PET) range by Ray Man software were determined. Consequently the data was analyzed by Spss 24 software. Our findings show that the respondents felt thermal comfort between 24.07 to 31.21centigrade (PET). It is also worth mentioning that the obtained results from estimating at structural equation model indicates that through the examination of two variables-checking the weather conditions and previous visits history one com predict the possibility of human thermal comfort up to %925.
