This online training course will show participants how to use RadianceIES, IES' 3D lighting simulation tool, to perform daylight analyses.

Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use the new RadianceIES features introduced in VE 2019 - setting RadianceIES surface properties within the construction database (CDB), the new glare evaluation tool and the additional sky resolutions.
  • Generate lighting images and to view lux levels, daylight factors and areas of visual discomfort. Calculate the Vertical Sky Component (VSC) for external windows.
  • Perform Climate-Based Daylight Modelling (CBDM) simulations to obtain Spatial Daylight Autonomy (sDA), Annual Sunlight Exposure (ASE) and Useful Daylight Illuminance (UDI) results. This will include analyses for BREEAM Hea 01 daylight requirements.
  • We will cover the placement of sensors to collect daylight data for subsequent use in ApacheSim and VE Compliance, for daylight-linked dimming of lights.

Note: Attendees should have had training in (or be competent in) ModelIT.
