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 MetricsAnnual 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!

Started by luyao in DIVA-Rhino (version 3.0). Last reply by luyao on Monday. 2 Replies

Hello everyone, I am simulating a room with one single side window. I am wondering how to take into account the pollution factor (0.9) and the frame factor (0.75) of the glazing? Can I just multiply these factors by the transmittance of the glazing…Continue
