In this exercise, students will learn how to:
|Figure 3.5.1 - Autodesk Ecotect Analysis surface model of school library building|
- Use the Ecotect Analysis grid tool to perform an analysis to estimate the daylighting factors (as a percentage) provided at various locations on the balcony level of the library.
- Repeat the analysis to estimate the daylighting level (in footcandles) provided at the balcony level.
- Identify especially dark and bright locations to be improved through design measures in the next exercise.
