  2. 2. A concept to evaluate dynamic daylight glare

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Efthymia Eirini Tsianaka; [2018]
    Keywords : glare; daylight; zonal; long-term; adaptation possibility; TPG; STG; directional glare; weighting system; dynamic; visual comfort; fenestration system; Arts and Architecture; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A method towards a dynamic daylight glare evaluation in the early stage of design was developed in this thesis, using existing glare metrics under multiple observer positions and gazes. The results pointed out that it is possible for a zonal characterization regarding glare sensation to be achieved with the combination of multiple existing metrics and a weighting system, named the adaptation possibility.

  3. 3. An early design tool/method for assessing the performance of complex fenestration systems

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign

    Author : Anton Hendrix; Dimosthenis Arampatzis; [2017]
    Keywords : Design tool; Glazing; Shading; User predictability; Solar gains; View; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : It is common knowledge that shading systems and solar control glasses are used to avoid glare and overheating at expenses of daylight. In Dynamic Thermal Modelling tools, there is no assessment method where the shading use is expressed when predicting the building performance. READ MORE
