IBPSA Education Webinar - Session 7: Daylight Performance Predictions by Christoph Reinhart




February 23, 2017

This talk provides an overview of the use of computer-based daylight simulations for building and urban design. Following a review of the history of daylight calculation methods over the past 100 years, we will focus on the evolution of Daylighting metrics from the daylight factor to climate-based metrics, interactive glare evaluations and emerging circadian alertness predictions. The presentation will close with a series of case studies ranging from façade detailing to urban zoning studies. Christoph Reinhart is an Associate Professor in Building Technology at MIT where he leads the Sustainable Design Lab.

About IBPSA:

The International Building Performance Simulation Association, is a non-profit international society of building performance simulation researchers, developers and practitioners, dedicated to improving the built environment. 

IBPSA published its first book, ‘Building Performance Simulation for Design and Operation’ with contributions from 21 expert co-authors throughout the world. This 536 page book provides a unique and comprehensive overview of Building Performance Simulation for the complete building life cycle from conception to demolition. Based on this book, IBPSA have organised a series of online webinars. Chapter authors have graciously agreed to offer 30 min webinar followed by Q & A session. Each webinar is focused on one chapter of book.
