Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Approaches to the modelling of irradiance and illuminance distribution within the ESP-r system, based on direct computation and co-operating programs respectively, are summarised. A recent extension to the projection-based, solar shading algorithm of the former approach – addressing diffuse beam shading quantification under realistic sky conditions – is described. The paper concludes with results from an example application of the extended algorithm to investigate the impact of diffuse shading on photovoltaic component power output.
