Integrating building information modeling and virtual reality development engines for building indoor lighting design

bld designLighting simulation tools are extending the functionality of Building Information Modeling (BIM) authoring software applications to support the lighting design analysis of buildings. This research proposes a method and develops a BIM-based lighting design feedback (BLDF) prototype system for realistic visualization of lighting condition and the calculation of energy consumption.

Submission requirements

Articles presented in this journal should explicitly include three main elements:

  • a research problem, which has significant importance to the field and rich scientific merit.
  • an Innovative solution, which should include specialist knowledge and be feasible to implement, to solve the target research problem.
  • a rigorous validation, which should primarily test the performance and usability of the innovative solution, and may include qualitative and quantitative methods.

The authors are expected to clearly present these three elements in the abstract. At the beginning of the submitted manuscript, the authors must provide a separate page summarizing them in three to five sentences each.
