Considerations on design optimization criteria for windows providing low energy consumption and high visual comfort
Apparent window size contradictions arise when optimizing simultaneously for low energy (small sizes) and visual comfort (large sizes). Diverse multi-objective optimization methods exist, but basicExpand
Windows, view, and office characteristics predict physical and psychological discomfort
Office employees spend a lot of time inside buildings, where the physical conditions influence their well-being and indirectly influence their employers' business performance. With data from a fieldExpand
Comfort of workers in office buildings: The European HOPE project
Previous studies have shown that building, social and personal factors can influence one's perceived health and comfort. The aim of the underlying study was to get a better understanding of theExpand
Linking indoor environment conditions to job satisfaction: a field study
Physical and questionnaire data were collected from 95 workstations at an open-plan office building in Michigan, US. The physical measurements encompassed thermal, lighting, and acoustic variables,Expand
State of the art in lighting simulation for building science: a literature review
This paper examines the current state of the art in lighting simulation related to building science research. Discussion on historical developments and main modelling approaches is followed byExpand
Effect of daylight saving time on lighting energy use: A literature review
The principal reason for introducing (and extending) daylight saving time (DST) was, and still is, projected energy savings, particularly for electric lighting. This paper presents a literatureExpand
Energy Pattern Generator Understanding the effect of user behaviour on energy systems
To understand and research the effect of user behaviour on energy performance, an Energy Pattern Generator (EPG) is being developed. This software tool produces high resolution electricity and heatExpand
Dynamic lighting systems in psychogeriatric care facilities in the Netherlands: A quantitative and qualitative analysis of stakeholders’ responses and applied technology
Investigation of the implementation of dynamic lighting systems from the perspective of stakeholders and the performance of the technology showed that the main reason for purchasing dynamic Lighting systems lied in the assumption that the well-being and day/night rhythmicity of residents could be improved.

Shedding a Light on Phototherapy Studies with People having Dementia
The overview demonstrates that the overall quality of the methodologies is poor and the robustness of light therapy studies can be improved by involving a light engineer or specialist. Expand
A multidirectional spectral measurement method and instrument to investigate non-image-forming effects of light
Light directionality, spectrum and relevant radiometric or photometric quantity are believed to be essential factors influencing the magnitude of non-image-forming effects. In this paper, aExpand
