Context Surfaces for Daylight Simulation

Hi everybody,

I have got a question regarding the Daylight Factor.

How can I consider some context surfaces in a daylight simulation?

Is there an equivalent to the “HoneyBee Ep context surfaces” component for a daylight simulation?

I think and hope there is, but I haven´t found it yet!

Thanks in advance


Hi Claudia

Anything you plug into HBObjects in the Daylight Simulation in honeybee will be considered as context. The daylight sim will be generated on the test geometry from your daylight simulation analysis recipe.

For the context geometry you’ll need to use the Honeybee_createHBSrfs giving the correct reflectance or transmittance depending on the material type.

Does that make sense?



Yes!! Great!

Thanks a lot Duncan!
