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 ...

Exploring the Impact of Natural Light Exposure on Sleep of Healthy Older Adults: A Field Study

Mariëlle P. J. Aarts, Janny C. Stapel, Toine A. M. C. Schoutens, Joost van Hoof

Research Article Studies among people with dementia demonstrated that the sleep quality and rhythm improves significantly when people are exposed to ambient bright light. Since almost half of the healthy older people also indicate to suffer from chronic sleep disorders, the question arises whether ambient bright lig ...

Maximizing the Performance of Laser Cut Panel by Interaction of Ceiling Geometries and Different Aspect Ratio

Ahmed A. Freewan

Research Article The interaction between different ceiling geometries with laser cut panels (LCPs) is investigated using real experiments and computer simulations to maximize the daylight performance of the LCP. In addition, LCP with different aspect ratios (width to depth ratio) is studied using simulation with cle ...

Daylighting as the Driving Force of the Design Process: from the Results of a Survey to the Implementation into an Advanced Daylighting Project

Valerio R.M. Lo Verso, Elena Fregonara, Federica Caffaro, Caterina Morisanov, Gian Maria Peiretti

Research Article This paper presents a study for the transformation of an industrial area in Turin, Italy. The area hosts two buildings (one of which appointed as listed) to be transformed into dwellings. A synergic approach was adopted which combined expertise from architecture, social-economics, psychology and bui ...

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 ...
