Daylighting provision gives a significant contribution to the enhancement of the indoor environment. However, in desert climates spaces are exposed to direct solar radiation, leading to a non-uniform daylight distribution and excessive heat gain. The literature proves that the use of a shading device may solve these problems. In this daylighting study, a parametric approach was implemented where all combinations of five screen parameters (window to wall ratio, louvers count, louvers tilt angle… CONTINUE READING
