What is your assumption to calculate radiation on inclined surfaces?

#1

hi all
i have some questions about calculating radiation.

  1. sky is isotropic model? … clear sky?
  2. how we can find those equations that was applied for calculating radiation?

Hi,@ahad
As I know, there are 3 method for radiation calculate.
1\Ladybuy radiation analysis.
2\Radiance-based radiation analysis.
3\EnergyPlus-based radiation analysis.
So could you me which one is your focus?

I simulated in canvas of ladybug.

Hi,@ahad
Radiation calculation in ladybug is using Gendaymtx exe file.
It is written by Ian Ashdown and Greg Ward. For more information, check the Radiance manual at:

I’ll also add that all of the 3 listed methods at the top are anisotropic. Most times, people use the EPW hourly radiation values, which account for cloud cover but it is also possible to do a clear sky radiation simulation as you see here
