Diva Day 2016
University of Toronto
Register now for DIVA Day 2016! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education. We're also holding a third annual DIVA Day Student Competition, with a $1500 prize! Due date has been extended to September 3.
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.
Hello,While following the DIVA for Grasshopper tutorials on the Solemma website, I evaluated hourly illuminance data of a simple room in one point (the way they do this in tutorial 6). This worked, but only partially. Most of the daytime results…Continue
Dear all,We are running grid-based Daylight Autonomy simulations. Our model includes multiple rooms with different orientations and different shading systems.I have a few questions:- shading controls:We are using detailed shading controls with…Continue
HiI have a query about the 'Daylighting Grid Component'. Is it possible to change some of its parameters after a simulation ended? I mean, I have run a simulation with a specific 'Lighting Power Density' and a specific 'Lighting Control System'.…Continue
