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 ...

Impact of Furniture Layout on Indoor Daylighting Performance in Existing Residential Buildings in Malaysia

Research Article Currently, home-based computing workspaces have developed substantially all over the world, especially in Malaysia. This growing trend attracts computer workers to run a business from their residential units. Hence, visual comfort needs to be considered in addition to thermal comfort for home worker ...

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 ...

Towards New Design of Laser Cut Acrylic Panels for Windows

Andreas Weibye, Barbara Matusiak

Research Article This paper builds upon existing research into laser cut panels and aims to find new design-patterns that would improve daylighting conditions of existing rooms when applying the laser-cut panels on vertical windows. The primary area of exploration is looking for new design patterns and their ability ...

Research Articles

Evaluation of Daylight Availability for Energy Savings

Laura Bellia, Francesca Fragliasso, Alessia Pedace

Research Article Dynamic daylight simulations are very useful instruments in daylighting design process. They allow an in depth analysis of indoor daylight availability levels and define if they are adequate to perform a particular visual task. Their results can be used to design shading devices or lighting control ...

Annual Performance Assessment of Complex Fenestration Systems in Sunny Climates Using Advanced Computer Simulations

Chantal Basurto, Jérôme H. Kämpf, Jean-Louis Scartezzini

Research Article Complex Fenestration Systems (CFS) are advanced daylighting systems that are placed on the upper part of a window to improve the indoor daylight distribution within rooms. Due to their double function of daylight redirection and solar protection, they are considered as a solution to mitigate the unf ...

Effect of window glazing on colour quality of transmitted daylight

Rajendra Dangol, Thijs Kruisselbrink, Alexander Rosemann

Research Article In this study, the colour quality of the daylight transmitted through different window glazing types is evaluated. The analysis considered four different types of window glazing: laminated, monolithic, coated and applied film glazing ranging in luminous transmittance from around 0.97 to <1. The spec ...
