Wednesday 14th May 6pm – 7.30pm
Ladan Ghobad will be speaking on Daylighting Simulation and Design Optimization
Architectural design of skylights is a challenging issue in buildings specifically in office buildings for the purpose of energy saving. This session will explain the associated problems with improper design of skylights and it will present design optimization of skylights to reach minimum energy consumption and building operation costs. Moreover, the speaker will provide a brief introduction about daylighting simulation tools; benefits of using accurate daylighting tools such as RADIANCE in energy simulation will be explained during this session; comparison of two simulation tools, OpenStudio and DIVA, in estimation of dynamic daylighting in buildings will be presented, and finally, application of daylighting simulation tools will be illustrated in case studies of successful daylit buildings.
We will also have a session to discuss the group and the IBPSA NCC research committee
The meeting will take place at INTERFACE ENGINEERING’s OFFICE, (2000 M street, Washington DC) the closest metro are the Farragut stations (North and West depending on which line you favour). Please give me a call on the number below or email me if you have any questions.
I am really looking forward to seeing everyone there!
