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 wants to know the detail process of calculations of daylight autonomy, daylight factors and useful daylight index in Daysim. The month wise report of calculations.It is possible? TruptiContinue
Hi everyone:I run into an issue without a clue to fix. The model works well on simulation or annual glare calculation; however, when I do climated-based calculation, it gives me an error in attachment. Can anyone help me with it? My model is too…Continue
hi,i see that DIVA can do the radiation map using a cumulative method.so can DIVA do the simulation of an irradiation map for a specific time, a specified moment?i am now trying to make an irrdiance map on the ground arround a building at a certain…Continue
Hi, I found that the fisheye image (.tif file) generated by point-in-time glare is cropped to a sphere area (see image 1), which is shown as a square image when using the wxFalsecolor.exe program to open the corresponding .pic image (see image 2).Do…Continue
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
hi,I'm new to the software and have started using the tutorials;however, after only a couple of steps an error occurs. I would appreciate any help to try and solve this.…Continue
