The dry-bulb temperature (DBT) is the temperature of air measured by a thermometer freely exposed to air, but shielded from radiation and moisture. DBT records the amount of heat in the the air or the true thermodynamic temperature, and is measured in degrees Celsius (°C), Kelvins (K), or degrees Fahrenheit (°F).

DBT is used in construction, as an important consideration when designing a building in a certain climate.

DBT is used in energy simulations, as an important metric in creating weather profiles for climates all over the world. It is most integral in creating psychrometric chart.
