Quantitative Investigation Through Climate-based Daylight Metrics of Visual Comfort Due to Colorful Glass and Orosi Windows in Iranian Architecture

Seyed Morteza Hosseini, Masi Mohammadi, Alexander Rosemann, Torsten Schröder

Research Article There are several alternatives to passive strategies in the early stages of the design process including orientation, window to wall ratio, shading device, material and colour that affect occupants’ visual comfort. However, applying simple traditional principles such as using colorful glasses for wi ...

Daylight utilization with light pipe in farm animal production: a simulation approach

Alejandro Pacheco Diéguez’, Niko Gentile, Hans von Wachenfelt, Marie-Claude Duboisba

Research Article Light pipes, which are complex optical systems, offer a passive way to bring daylight to deep buildings, such as agricultural buildings. However, the lack of reliable performance predictability methods for light pipes represents a major obstacle preventing their widespread use. This paper evaluates ...

Lighting Energy Saving with Light Pipe in Farm Animal Production

Hans von Wachenfelt, Vaia Vakouli, Alejandro Pacheco Diéguez’, Niko Gentile, Marie-Claude Dubois, Knut-Håkan Jeppsson

Research Article The Swedish animal production sector has potential for saving electric lighting of €4-9 million per year using efficient daylight utilisation. To demonstrate this, two light pipe systems, Velux® (house 1) and Solatube® (house 2), are installed in two identical pig houses to determine if the required ...

A Methodology to Link the Internal Heat Gains from Lighting to the Global Consumption for the Energy Certification of Buildings in Italy

Valerio R.M. Lo Verso, Guglielmina Mutani, Laura Blaso

Research Article This paper critically discusses the procedure prescribed by the Italian Technical Standards to account for the internal gains in the calculation of the energy performance indices for a building. This procedure is based on a tabular value set depending on the building usage only (e.g., 6 W/m2 for off ...
