Details to come!
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 all-I have been working on my latest generation macbook pro using Diva for Rhino & Grasshopper, and when running analyses to radiance, it takes an incredibly long time to return a result, usually to the order of 15 minutes or so. Using a…Continue
Hello everyone,I tried to use using cumulative sky method and Daysim-based hourly method to calculate the radiation map on 21 Sep. But the results are so different. The former one is around 112 kWh/m2, while the latter one is around 3 kWh/m2. I…Continue
Hello again.I have been testing the switchable electrochromic dynamic shading solution and get some odd results. I have created four separate layers for each state and each are offset by 5 mm from the next state so they don't cause problems with…Continue
Hello Everyone, I'm looking to do a glare simulation with a black frit pattern on a stainless steel exterior wall. does anyone have any ideas on how this could be approximated using a custom diva material? I'm looking to do a glare analysis.…Continue
Diva Team,I was running an IEQ analysis at diva and the results were very strange. After I renamed the file the results changed but the same weather file and materials were used. I do have the same problem happening in other files and was not able…Continue
