Title: Calculating access to skylight sunlight and solar radiation on obstructed urban sites in Europe

Ref Code: BR379
Authors: P Littlefair and M E Aizlewood

Abstract1: Conventional solar prediction techniques tend to assume an unobstructed site, but nearly all urban and suburban sites are obstructed to some degree. This report contains manual tools to find, for almost all of Europe, how much skylight, sunlight and solar gain reach the outside of an obstructed window or a point in a building layout. Complex as well as simple obstruction profiles can be modelled. The tools comprise: a skylight indicator, sunlight availability indicators, sunpath indicators, and solar gain indicators.
