Daylight Modeling and Simulation Standards The IESNA daylight metrics committee has undertaken an effort to document Daylight Modeling and Simulation standards to inform daylighting design and analysis practices and the calculation of the various metrics used.
Currently, there are minimal standards around annual 808 S Public Rd, Lafayette, CO 80026 Ph.: (303) 946 2310 email@example.com daylighting modeling and simulation practices and a disconcerting lack of agreement between different daylight modeling software and processes which makes the development of daylighting metrics, criteria and thresholds challenging. This effort aims to document recommended standard modeling and simulation protocols along with a number of test case “gold standards” that can used to validate other calculation and simulation methods.
