Description Temperature is not the only variable that affects subjective human perception of thermal comfort in the environment. The paper compares indexes "wind chill", "heat index" and "physiologically equivalent temperature (PET)" which are used to describe the influence of microclimatic conditions on the human body. We also present software "Rayman" developed at the University of Freiburg, which calculates the PET index and can be used for teaching this topic on the edge of physics and biology.
