What is the impact of window designs with same WWR on daylight and outside view?
What is this graphic showing? Describe the different parts of the graphic and how it communicates the data.
This is to investigate if ensuring access to views results in sub optimal daylight access. The contradiction in results of UDI and sDA metric shows that the answer depends on the function and relevance of the metric used.
What type of graphic is this?
- Analysis grid
Is this part of the ASHRAE-209 cycle?
- Cycle 2 Conceptual Design
What tools were used for the simulation analysis?
- Ladybug Tools
What tools did you use to create the graphic?
- Adobe Photoshop
What was successful and/or unique about the graphic in how it communicates information?
The graphic shows the variance in UDI and sDA when the window design is changed from vertical to horizontal keeping the WWR constant. It also shows the extreme case with maximum UDI but without any outdoor view , thereby representing the dilemma of a designer.
Is there anything else you would like to mention?
This was done as a part of academic work for Master's in Building Energy Performance programme of CEPT university, India. It is a collaborative effort with Ms. Mili Jain who is an alumni of the university.
