The Hunt Library Lighting Analysis project was the first project for Building Physics. As a group, we were given a section of CMU's Hunt Library to simulate and analyze. We had to simulate the conditions of the space in categories like Luminance and Illuminance Analysis, Glare Analysis, and Solar Radiation Analysis. After simulating the space, we combed over our data of Hunt and wrote up a report on our findings, as well as suggestions for improvements to Hunt.
Throughout the project, we had to familiarize ourselves with the DIVA plugin for Rhino 5 and improve our abilities to look at a table of numbers and both understand what we were seeing and compare these values to the building codes for a library.
