RadianceIES is a detailed 3D simulation tool designed to predict daylight, and the appearance of internal spaces prior to construction. If using in conjunction with LightPro simulations can be performed for electric lighting only or for schemes combining daylight and electric light.
It uses sophisticated ray-tracing techniques to produce photo-realistic images and takes into account:
- Position of your building and site
- Time of day and date
- Sky conditions
- Material properties
- Shading surfaces
- Adjacent buildings
There are no limitations on the materials and geometry which can be simulated. Both luminance (what your eye sees) and surface or working plane illuminance (what the surface receives) can be analysed.
RadianceIES uses scientific data to create its images, so you and your clients will really understand the impact of light within a building. It generates detailed simulations from which you can obtain lux, glare and daylight factor information, enabling you to design and test natural and electric lighting systems and make your building a better, more energy-efficient place to be.
