Abstract
Simulation tools that physically model daylight and electric lighting systems show promise in planning energy efficient lighting systems. There are still many barriers for these tools to reach the market. This research examines using bring high performance computing and user-centered design to the creation of an innovative lighting simulation and analysis software system. During Phase I of this project, research was performed in user interfaces and usability to determine baseline practices of architects and consultants as well as iteratively building a feasibility prototype. The Phase II research will focus on building the high performance computing platform, interoperability, and further user-centered prototype developments. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: This proposed research effort will create a highly functional Beta system that will help a variety of people to formulate, manage, understand, communicate, and solve complex parametric environmental problems.
