London welcomes DIVA Day 2015!
The 4th DIVA Day will be held in London, England!
Co-hosted by the Architectural Association
Conference October 23
Training Sessions October 22 + 24
DIVA Day is a full-day event of presentations and panel discussions for practitioners, students and educators about building performance and design using DIVA and associated building simulation tools. This year, in addition to going international, we are excited to be pairing up with the Architectural Association in London to bring you exciting new work in the field of building performance and design. Check out previous DIVA Day presentations here!
This year’s events will include:
We will be making an exciting announcement soon, so stay tuned!
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.
New in DIVA-3.0 is the ability to simulate the IES-LM-83 sDA and ASE standards as well as detailed electric lighting.
Presentations and audio from DIVA Day 2014 have been posted!
Hello.I have just begun taking the step from DIVA-for-Rhino to DIVA-for-Grasshopper and I have run into a problem. It doesn't seem like I'm able to visualize my results on the analysis grid and I have looked all over for a solution.I keep getting…Continue
Hey there,I am having getting fatal errors when running Thermal Simulations, i.e. Energy Plus cannot start up.I tried reinstalling DIVA twice but to no avail. The software works on my other computer, which leads me to think that this software…Continue
Hi everybody,I would like to know if is possible to using computer farms power to run multiple simulations at the same time with DIVA.If so, does DIVA has an interface for that? How can we use a computer farm and assign several simulations to…Continue
Has anyone successfully changed the GenericTranslucentPanel_20PercentTransmittance material?I have done simulations with the GenericTranslucentPanel_20PercentTransmittance material and had good results, but I would like the simulation to be…Continue
Hi,I am running LEED v4 sDA calcualtions and I was wondering if anyone can clarify following:Q1- In the image below, which floor area is used for calculating the percentage of space meeting the sDA criteria. Is it the actual room boundary ( 20’ x20…Continue
Hi All,I am looking at the end of a .dat file for a point in time illuminance run & I'm wondering if any of the #'s in the results below are an average illuminance. Can you describe what the lines below represent?# # nodegroup00# 0 0 1# 1 0 0#…Continue
