Diva Day 2017

October 27

UC Berkeley

Register now for DIVA Day 2017! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education.


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.

How to consider a volume reduction into Archsim

Started by Valeria Sarra in ARCHSIM-Grasshopper (version 4.0). Last reply by Valeria Sarra on Friday. 2 Replies

I would like to take into account internal objects in a room as a volume that reduces the total volume to consider. Therefore, I would like to know how can I change the volume input through the IDF file, also if there are other solutions,…Continue

Daylight autonomy: individual interior point with too high local illuminance

Started by Sarah Leenknegt in DIVA-Rhino (version 4.0). Last reply by Sarah Leenknegt Oct 11. 2 Replies

HiI am simulating the daylight autonomy for the internal wall surfaces in a few rooms. When looking at the local illuminance values over the year, I have one point which gets much higher illuminances than the surrounding points. This happens on…Continue
