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 ...

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 ...
