An industry perspective on building simulations with solar shading
MicroShade A/S, Gregersensvej 1F, DK-2630, Taastrup, Denmark
This case study illustrates the difficulties that designers encounter when trying to simulate building performance taking both daylight, indoor climate and view out into account. An example of a workflow for combined climate-based daylight and indoor climate calculations using two separate software is shown for illustrating the challenges. Furthermore, the study shows how the evaluation of indoor climate, daylight and view out, in accordance with EN 15251, EN 17037 and EN 14501, can be linked together as a basis for comparison of different solar shading technologies for ZEB buildings.
