GOMEZ, S.  and  QUIROS, C.. SSV3D: Simulator of Vectorial Shadows by Solar Radiation on 3D Computerized Objects. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2005, vol.16, n.4, pp.77-82. ISSN 0718-0764.

SSV3D is presented as a graphic computer tool developed on the three-dimensional platform of AUTOCAD 2004, which simulates direct solar radiation by measuring and vectorial tracing of shadow outlines on illuminated plans of the 3D model evaluated. The analytical results of this tool were tested during its' development by comparing its' results with those obtained in the formula of a calculus sheet, and graphic results were checked comparing these to the shadows obtained by simulation using physical models in a heliodon  (French technology) and by the Render of AUTOCAD. The SSV3D simulator responded satisfactorily to the requirements for the study of solar protection systems which had been determined in previous research.

Keywords : solar simulation tool; graphic computer tool; shading devices; vectorial shadows.
