Daylighting metrics: an approach to dynamic cubic illuminance

Juan Manuel Monteoliva, Ayelén Villalba, Andrea Pattini

Research Article Advances in research work in the field of numerical analysis of daylight performance have generated in-depth knowledge on photometric measurements of daylight quality. Most dynamic metrics are based on illuminance, which is a two-dimensional concept insofar as it is concerned with the density of lum ...

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 ...

Solar Energy Gain and Space-Heating Energy Supply Analyses for Solid-Wall Dwelling Retrofitted with the Experimentally Achievable U-value of Novel Triple Vacuum Glazing

Saim Memon, Philip C Eames

Research Article A considerable effort is devoted to devising retrofit solutions for reducing space-heating energy in the domestic sector. Existing UK solid-wall dwellings, which have both heritage values and historic fabric, are being improved but yet they tend to have meagre thermal performance, partly, due to the ...
