Daylighting simulations with BSDFs

Ocean 2016 Release 5 has been made available last week. It brings a new feature, the Igloo Matrix BRDF model, which allows using data from the LBNL WINDOW software (IGDB database). We have tested it on a 3D office model, with a double glazing unit (DGU) window comprising a high performance solar control coating. The […]

Comparing glazings

Using Ocean for building design The Ocean software can generate accurate images of complex materials such as coated glass. This makes it an interesting tool for building design, as it is possible to predict the aspect of the project depending on used materials, by doing virtual mock-ups, without any construction cost. Many questions can be […]

Color tolerances of car paints

Introduction Some industrial processes produce variable colors, that are adjusted to match a given target. The target is not only a single color value, it must provide tolerances for the color coordinates, in which the product can be considered as good. Choosing optimal color tolerances is a difficult task : if they are too large, […]
