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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
Exploring the impact of external shading system on cognitive task performance, alertness and visual comfort in a daylit workplace environment
(Sage Publications, 2020-08)
The authors examined the effect of external shading system on cognitive performance, alertness and visual comfort of visual display terminal (VDT) users under two realistic office lighting settings in this study. Daylight ...
