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. ...
Characterization and data-driven modeling of a retro-reflective coating in RADIANCE
Retro-reflective coatings applied to blinds of reduced geometric complexity promise to provide view to the outside while effectively controlling solar gains and glare. To characterize the reflection characteristics of such ...
Computational combination of the optical properties of fenestration layers at high directional resolution
Complex fenestration systems typically comprise co-planar, clear and scattering layers. As there are many ways to combine layers in fenestration systems, a common approach in building simulation is to store optical properties ...
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 ...
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 ...
