combine BSDFs for Multiple windows

Hi All,

I know how to calculate 3 phase method using bsdf of single window, but in case if i have 3 different windows with different bsdfs, how can we take care of this in dctimestep.

Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,
Raghu

Hi Raghu,

A similar example is discussed in Section 7.4 of this document: https://www.radiance-online.org/learning/tutorials/matrix-based-methods

The example files for that document can be found here:

https://www.radiance-online.org/learning/tutorials/radTutorialFiles-master.zip

If you are just interested in the commands, try this link: https://github.com/sariths/radTutorialFiles/blob/master/room/commands/3PM_VarShad.sh
(This shell file is also included in the document mentioned above)

The idea is to create separate view and daylight matrices for individual windows, use dctimestep to calculate those individual results and finally combine the results using pcomb(images) or rmtxop(illuminance). You can study the contribution from individual windows by changing the transmission matrix in dctimestep.
