APPLICABILITY OF DGP AND DGI FOR EVALUATING GLARE IN A BRIGHTLY DAYLIT SPACE
This paper describes experience gained attempting to
evaluate visual comfort in a brightly lit workspace.
Simulation demonstrated that common discomfort glare
metrics such as Daylight Glare Probability (DGP) and
Daylight Glare Index (DGI) were ineffective for
evaluating glare in a brightly illuminated space, and a
subsequent mockup confirmed this conclusion. We
attempt to explain why the metrics produced unsuitable
