NC-2009 IEQc8.1: Daylight and views - daylight
posted by April Ambrose on Apr 15, 2010, 5:41 pm

about the practical application of daylighting and human perception mechanisms. If I had my way, this forum would not be used for specific questions about daylighting simulation because it implies that these software programs are easy and complete ways to evaluate daylighting and they are not. The questions for daylighting simulations would be best discussed on each software's forum, through IBSPA or the building simulation forum. Email me if you would like the addresses to any of these forums. Log in or register to post comments TODD REED Energy Program Specialist PA DMVA LEEDuser Expert 890 thumbs up...
