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 ...
Photon mapping to accelerate daylight simulation with high-resolution, data-driven fenestration models
(IOP Publishing, 2019)
Data-driven modelling provides a general means to represent optically complex fenestration in daylight simulation by its Bidirectional Scattering Distribution Function (BSDF). Radiance employs the tensor tree as a compact ...
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 ...
Comparison of measured and computed BSDF of a daylight redirecting component
The Bidirectional Scatter Distribution Function (BSDF) of a selected Daylight Redirecting Component (DRC) is computed by a virtual goniophotometer using the enhanced photon map extension in Radiance, and compared to ...
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. ...
