Discomfort glare is an underutilized parameter in contemporary architectural design due to uncertainties about the meaning of existing metrics, how they should be applied and what the benefits of such analysis are. Glare is position and view direction-dependent within a space, rendering it difficult to assess compared to conventional illuminance-based metrics. This paper compares simulation results for five glare metrics under 144 clear sky conditions in three spaces in order to investigate the… 

Determination of the Simplified Daylight Glare Probability (DGPs) Criteria for Daylit Office Spaces in Thailand

The increasing trend of employing glazed façades to utilize daylight in the buildings has made it necessary to develop measures to avoid excessive sunlight penetration in such daylit spaces. In

Review of Factors Influencing Discomfort Glare Perception from Daylight

ABSTRACT Because well-being is becoming a major challenge in construction alongside energy efficiency, there is an increasing need to be able to quantify discomfort in buildings. In the case of

A Critical Literature Review of Spatio-temporal Simulation Methods for Daylight Glare Assessment

It is found that, due to computational constraints, there is an over-reliance on illuminance-based metrics for spatio-temporal glare assessment, even while user assessment research reinforces the importance of including contrast-based measures.

In-situ evaluation of high-performance glazing based on illuminance and glare

High-technology glazing panes are designed to meet the need for natural light, while optimizing key functions such as reducing solar heat gain in spaces and/or redirecting daylight to the rear of the

DYNAMIC DAYLIGHT GLARE EVALUATION

In non-residential buildings, comfort and energy demand for heating, cooling and lighting are significantly influenced by the façade. Up to now, only non-weighted luminance-based methods for

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.

DYNAMIC SIMULATION OF BLIND CONTROL STRATEGIES FOR VISUAL COMFORT AND ENERGY BALANCE ANALYSIS

The presented study describes a method for evaluating control strategies for shading devices. The method is based on dynamic lighting simulations with RADIANCE and DAYSIM and explores energy,

Experimental Validation of Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design 2009 and Daysim 3.0

Abstract This article compares daylight simulation results generated with two simulation programs, Autodesk® 3ds Max® Design 2009 (3ds Max Design) and Daysim 3.0 (Daysim), to indoor illuminance
