I am facing a problem , which I am not sure how to solve . I am not even sure if this is a valid question, but I thought to share and get some insight from others.
Apartment Design Guide (ADG) in NSW, Australia requires minimum of 2 hours direct sunlight between 9 am and 3 pm at mid winter. We need to validate a design and see if it is complying with the requirement.
We have already set up the study and can get the result to show which part of the facade will get minimum two hours of direct sunlight , So thanks for creation of this amazing tool,
However the question is, what if part of the window get direct sun in mutually exclusive time bracket?
Let me elaborate with specific scenario:
What if my main test point ( Lets say at the middle of window ) gets 1.5 hours of direct sunlight from 9 am till 10:30 am.
Another test point which is located on the top right hand side of the window , will ONLY get direct sun between 2:00 pm and 2:30 pm.
No point on the surface of window will get direct 2 hours of sun light , but overall the room is complying with ADG requirement.
Is there any way to consider the window area as a container and test for above scenario?
Any help is greatly appreciated .
