Diva Day 2017
Register now for DIVA Day 2017! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education.
What is DIVA-for-Rhino?
DIVA-for-Rhino is a highly optimized daylighting and energy modeling plug-in for the Rhinoceros - NURBS modeler. The plug-in was initially developed at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and is now distributed and developed by Solemma LLC. DIVA-for-Rhino allows users to carry out a series of environmental performance evaluations of individual buildings and urban landscapes including Radiation Maps, Photorealistic Renderings, Climate-Based Daylighting Metrics, Annual and Individual Time Step Glare Analysis, LEED and CHPS Daylighting Compliance, and Single Thermal Zone Energy and Load Calculations.
Hi,I see that daylight calculations in DIVA for manual on/off switch is based on the lightswitch-2002 model that automatically assumes blind enclosure when solar irradiance of 50 w/m2 (or higher) is received. Correct me if I am wrong.My question is…Continue
Hi,I am using Archsim for a glazed facade with a shading devices. I inserted shading components separately as a Brep into the input of (shading geometry collection) in the zone network component.See the attached picture.The simulation ran…Continue
Hello I am using Diva to simulate dynamic shading. In Shading controls tab, I select detailed dynamic shading as in the attached file. How can I select exterior nodes from the scene, when I try to make new nodes by Diva it asked me if I want to…Continue
For ASE calculations, LM-83 prescribes that "only the direct beam from the sun is accounted for" (which, if I understand correctly, means no contributions from the rest of the sky). How is Diva doing that? Thanks in advance.Continue
