dctimestep - compute annual simulation time-step via matrix multiplication


dctimestep Vspec Tbsdf.xml Dmat.dat [ tregvec ]


Dctimestep takes four input files, forming a matrix expression. The first argument is the View matrix file that specifies how window output directions are related to some set of measured values, such as an array of illuminance points or images. This matrix is usually computed by rtcontrib(1) for a particular set of windows or skylight openings. The second argument is the window transmission matrix, or BSDF, given as a standard XML description. The third argument is the Daylight matrix file that defines how sky patches relate to input directions on the same opening. This is usually computed using genklemsamp(1) with rtcontrib in a separate run for each window or skylight orientation. The final input is the sky contribution vector, usually computed by genskyvec(1), which may be passed on the standard input. This data must be in ASCII format, whereas the View and Daylight matrices are more efficiently represented as binary float data if machine byte-order is not an issue.

Sent to the standard output of dctimestep is either an ASCII color vector with as many RGB triplets as there are rows in the View matrix, or a combined Radiance picture. Which output is produced depends on the Vspec argument. A regular file name will be loaded and interpreted as a matrix to generate a color results vector. A file specification containing a '%d' format string will be interpreted as a list of Radiance component pictures, which will be summed according to the computed vector.


To compute a set of illuminance contributions for Window 1 on the Winter solstice at 2pm:
gensky 12 21 14 | genskyvec | dctimestep IllPts.vmx Blinds20.xml Window1.dmx > Ill_12-21-14.dat

To compute Window2's contribution to an interior view at 12 noon on the Summer solstice:

gensky 6 21 12 | genskyvec | dctimestep view%03d.hdr Blinds30.xml Window2.dmx > view_6-21-12.hdr
