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 light can be beneficial to healthy older people. Particularly the effect on sleep/wake rhythm in relati ...

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 workers in their residential working rooms. While such rooms are always occupied with furniture, the layou ...

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 spectral transmittance data of different window glazing types are taken from the International Glazing D ...

Design and optical evaluation of a novel asymmetric lens-walled compound parabolic concentrator (ALCPC) integration with building south wall

Qingdong Xuan, Guiqiang Li, Gang Pei, Yuehong Su, Jie Ji

Research Article Solar concentrating system is an effective way of combing solar energy with the building to satisfy the needs besides of electricity and hot water, also includes building heating, refrigeration, dehumidification, which require higher quality heat source. This paper put forward a novel static incorporated asymmetric lens-walled compound parabolic concentrator (ALCPC), which is composed of the mirro ...

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 a simulation approach for performance prediction and identifies key light pipe design parameters aff ...

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 office buildings), independently of the site and of the controls for blinds and lighting systems. Inste ...

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 building physics sciences. Building physics sciences lead the research team. A user-centered design was ...
