Assessing Photopic and Melanopic Daylighting Performance of Special Glazing System: A Full-scale Experiments


Comparative research on the influence of daylight and visual environment on melatonin oscillations and the performance of space users was realized in two identical rooms with different glazing at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Slovak Technical University in Bratislava. The glazing in the windows had significantly different transmittances of melanopic light. This article presents measured changes in the intensity of photopic and melanopic daylighting values inside the rooms on horizontal and differently oriented vertical plane. Photopic and melanopic illuminances were measured under cloudy and partly clear skies during several months in 2021 and 2022. The article is also partially devoted to the effect of light from a computer monitor on the spectral composition of light on the eye of a person working with a computer. The article also analyzes the problems associated with the evaluation of non-visual aspects of daylighting of the interior spaces of buildings.
