In this practical example we show how can be used daylight analysis to size the shadow protections. In BIM we can create parameters to compare analysis results against required results for different space uses. With programming we can link simulations performed in “non-BIM” software with BIM models, to get enter full neccesary data in our project.
In this practical example we wanted to show the facade design process from energy efficiency approach. We’ve used the incident solar radiation on panels that shapes the façade to determinate the openings size, using BIM technology.
