Chapter 12: Introduction to lighting simulations

Bournas, Iason LU (2019) p.371-404
Abstract
This is one the 13 chapters included in the book titled "Daylighting and Lighting under a Nordic sky". The chapter focuses on daylight simulation for buildings. It begins with the fundamental elements existing in every daylight simulation scenario, i.e. the scene geometry, the sky model, the ground, the areas of interest, the space usage and the simulation engine. The reader is introduced to different daylight simulation techniques developed over the past decades, and which are deployed in available simulation tools today. Eventually, procedures to conduct annual daylight simulations are presented, alongside the implications of different methods and aspects of daylight simulation control.
