LSS Chronolux
The main goal of LSS Chronolux is to test insolation duration and SVF at a given point
LSS Chronolux

Features

  • interactive real-time duration of insolation testing and SVF calculation at a pointer position
  • graphical representation of duration of insolation and SVF testing results
  • duration of insolation of an area defined by a face or surface testing
  • listing of processed test points
  • setting a testing time period and testing accuracy
  • manual refreshing of testing results if it is necessary after model changes
  • help system
  • instructor is enabled while LSS Chronolux tools are active

Terms and Definitions

Insolation is the solar radiation that reaches the earth's surface. It is measured by the amount of solar energy received per square centimetre per minute.

Duration of Insolation at a given point is the time period while direct sunlight reaches the test point.

SVF (sky view factor) is the extent of sky observed from a point as a proportion of the total possible sky hemisphere. (A Dictionary of Earth Sciences | 1999 | AILSA ALLABY and MICHAEL ALLABY).

WVF (window view factor) is the extent of sky observed from a point as a proportion of the total possibly observable sky from a point through a window (despite of shadowing objects outside the window).
