AbstractThis paper presents the development of analysis software for the optical characteristics and daylighting performance of conventional and tubular skylights. It focuses on the software structure, inputs, outputs and analysis modules. It provides preliminary results from the prediction models for the beam transmittance of barrel vault skylights, diffuse transmittance of domed skylights under different sky conditions, and average Daylight Factor on internal room surfaces. The work included the development of prediction models for optical and daylighting performance of different skylight shapes, experimental and analytical validation of the prediction models, and software design.
