Comparative Radiance and Velux.zip (1.2 MB)
I did some tests with Honeybee+Radiance and Velux regarding how the sun orientation affects the illuminance level in a room.
I’ve created a 2,65m x 3,20m on Archicad, saved as an obj file, and then imported to Rhino and Velux
On Radiance I’ve set the sky condition to “Intermediate without sun”, and on Velux to CIE 7, wich I think are similar (maybe I’m wrong?)
Then I’ve rendered using 18 different sun orientations. The results are displayed on the chart below.
I’ve used the same reflectance and transmittance levels for both tests and the same date and location, but I’m getting quite different results. I’m not sure why. can anyone help me on this?
I’m sending the results .png files for comparison
