IBPSA Education Webinar Series 2019: Session-5: Effects of real-time
simulation feedback on the design for visual comfort by Nathaniel Jones

Thursday, May 2, 2019, 16h00 UTC, 21h30 IST (India), 09h00 PDT/PST (Pacific
time USA)

How can we choose the building performance simulation software that helps
its users make the best decisions? This webinar explores the psychology of
simulation users interacting with two similar simulation tools and tracks
the different patterns of design exploration, outcome, and user satisfaction
that result. It focuses on the importance of accurate real-time feedback to
enhance the abilities of designers and building analysts. In a study, 40
subjects with backgrounds in building design and technology completed two
shading design exercises to balance glare reduction and annual daylight
availability in two open office arrangements using two simulation tools with
differing system response times, AcceleradRT and DIVA-for-Rhino. Subjects
with access to real-time simulation feedback tested more design options,
reported higher confidence in design performance and increased satisfaction
with the design task, and produced better-performing final designs with
respect to spatial daylight autonomy and enhanced simplified daylight glare

Dr. Nathaniel Jones is a building scientist, educator, and software
developer. He is currently an Advanced Technology & Research analyst at Arup
and teaches building science at the University of San Francisco. His
background spans architectural design, engineering, and computer science,
with emphasis tools that aid informed decision making in early design. He is
the developer of Accelerated, a suite of open-source GPU-based lighting and
daylighting simulation tools used by architects, engineers, and educators
around the world. Dr. Jones is active in the building science community and
serves as chair of the International Building Performance Simulation
Association-USA chapter's Research Committee and the subcommittee on
Emerging Simulation Technologies. He is the author of multiple journal and
conference papers related to building energy and daylighting simulation, and
he has regularly been an invited speaker on the application of parallel
computation to building simulation.
