Title A new evaluation method for daylight discomfort glare
Bibliographic information Apr. 2005, Vol.35, No.4, p.295-306. Illus. 19 ref.
Abstract This article presents an improved method for the evaluation of glare consisting of a standard monitoring protocol and advanced formulae. The proposed method appears to yield sensible and consistent glare values when tested against an existing glare evaluation system. It has also been coded into a small programme to calculate luminescence values and used together with radiance to compute daylight glare indices. The method may be used for evaluating discomfort glare from daylight. Future developments of the method are discussed.
