Since I have been posting here just problems that many of you have kindly
read and answered, I decided to publish a pre-version of my MSc project,
hoping that it can be useful for some of you.
My project is to develop an as-friendly-as-possible tool for the design and
evaluation of the performance of shading systems for different facades,
weathers, etc. The idea is to design in SketchUp, then use Radiance to
assess the Visible Transmittance (genBSDF), the solar heat gain coefficient
(genSHGC, still in development), and to use the Three-Phase Method (I have
heard it is becoming a more-than-three-phases method...??) to compute the
Illuminance distribution as well as the solar gains, for each window.
For now I have managed to export geometry with their respective modifiers
in an organized way (the standard Sunlite directories), and create a
Scenario file that has the information of the systems "installed" on each
window, and the normal direction of it. That way, a script called SL_presim
generates the Daylight and View Matrices for each window, storing them in
the appropriate directory, for a posterior SL_sim script to simulate the
year out of an EnergyPlus weather file.
Anyway, you can see a 3 min. video
I had trouble with the audio.... and a web site
PS: Just for you to know, for now, both the video and the webpage can only
be seen by the people who have the Link.
