High-resolution data-driven models of Daylight Redirection Components
(TU Delft Open, 2017-05)
Daylight Redirecting Components (DRCs) guide daylight to zones with insufficient daylight exposure. They reduce energy demand for lighting, heating and cooling, and improve visual and thermal comfort. The data-driven model ...
Scale-model and simulation-based assessments for design alternatives of daylight redirecting systems for side-lighting in an educational design room
(Middle East Technical University, 2017)
Daylight has been proven to have positive effects on well-being, comfort and performance of occupants in buildings; it specifically increases learning performance in educational buildings. Side-lighting from one ...
Three approaches to optimize optical properties and size of a South-facing window for spatial Daylight Autonomy
This study presents optimization approaches by a recent Climate-Based-Daylight-Modeling tool, EvalDRC, to figure out the necessary area for a daylight redirecting micro-prism film (MPF) while minimizing the glazing area. ...
Simulation-based retrofitting of an educational building in terms of optimum shading device and energy efficient artificial lighting criteria
(LLC Editorial of Journal "Light Technik", 2016)
The high level of daylight performance is crucial to increase academic and work performance of students and staff in educational buildings which are mostly used during the daytime. New design solutions have potential to ...
An investigation on daylighting performance in educational institutions
(Emerald Group Publishing, 2013-05)
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to investigate natural illumination properties of one of the classrooms in the School of Architecture at Izmir Institute of Technology, located in Turkey, which is the northern ...
Artificial neural networks to predict daylight illuminance in office buildings
A prediction model was developed to determine daylight illuminance for the office buildings by using artificial neural networks (ANNs). Illuminance data were collected for 3 months by applying a field measuring method. ...
