This paper describes a method for estimating the daylight factor under clears@ conditions. The internal illuminance is
divided into two components; light received directly form the window, as a di@e source, and light reflectedpom the
internal surfaces of the room. The method intended to estimate the internal illuminance as a relative valueporn the
vertical illuminance on the external surface of the vertical window plane. A comparison against computer simulation is
used to validate the proposed method.
The purpose of this method is to provide a simple technique that can be used at the early design stages, which can give a
prelimina y information about daylight performunce inside a room.
