Mean radiant temperature may play a pivotal role in the assessment of the outdoorenvironmental conditions in urban areas. However, its assessment in urban settings is not asimple task owing to the presence of complex and articulated environment and of solarradiation. The article aims to perform a comparison among the results yielded by differentmethods: the globe-thermometer method, and the six-directional technique. The scope of sucha survey is an analysis of the actual appropriateness of the more practical, albeit less accurate,globe-thermometer method to outdoor environments. Furthermore, an analytical model,previously elaborated by the authors and here modified to make it applicable to outdoorenvironment, was also considered with a view to verifying its accuracy in predicting the effectof solar radiation. To fulfil all the tasks an experimental investigation was carried out,involving a globe-thermometer with a diameter of 150 mm, usually used in indoorenvironments.
