Influence of the Height of the Line Of Sight in the Evaluation of Glare Sensation in Pre-School Classrooms

  title={Influence of the Height of the Line Of Sight in the Evaluation of Glare Sensation in Pre-School Classrooms},
  author={Natalia Giraldo Vasquez and F. Francke Oscar and Ruttkay Pereira},
In pre-school classrooms children between 4 and 6 years old perform various activities in different workplans adopting several body postures, which change the height at which the eyes are located. The aim of this study is to identify those variables of architecture and the conditions that have the greatest influence on the variation of the assessment of glare sensation when the height of the line of sight changes. Computer simulations and mathematical model of DGI were used to study (under…

View and discomfort glare from windows
It was found that subjects' reported discomfort from glare varied significantly between all three cases in the first experiment and all four cases of the second experiment: glare discomfort decreased as interest increased, and the luminance range within a view also affected the experience of glare.
EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON DISCOMFORT GLARE CAUSED BY WINDOWS : Subjective response to glare from a simulated window
The results of an experiment for evaluating discomfort glare using a simulated window in an en − vironment test chamber assuming an actual office condition are 吐escribed and the applicability of
The Effect of Luminance Distribution Patterns on Occupant Preference in a Daylit Office Environment
The most consistent and effective metrics to explain variability in subjective responses were found to be the ‘mean luminance of the glare sources’, and DGP consistently performed better than DGI, confirming previous findings.

Visual aspects of sunlight in buildings
It is generally taken for granted that people like sunshine inside buildings, provided thermal and visual discomfort are avoided. Obviously the degree to which sunshine is liked is dependent on
The Virtual Lighting Laboratory: Per-pixel Luminance Data Analysis
The analyses in this paper have been limited to the study of the distribution and directionality of light, and highlight some of the per-pixel analysis capabilities of the VLL.

Discomfort glare from interesting images
There was a greater tolerance of discomfort glare from images previously judged ‘interesting’ by an independent subject group than from other screen images giving the same calculated glare rating or from a reference source.
