Results differ each time of running simulations

Postby nilkutlareskin » Tue Mar 27, 2018 7:52 am

Hi,

I am getting slightly different results when I run the simulation of same model. What would be the reason fro that?

Hi,

As described on the Progam Help

Radiance works using a statistical Monte Carlo approach and this means that you will not get exactly the same results if you repeat a calculation using exactly the same model and options. You can reduce this effect by using higher detail settings but you cannot completely eliminate it.

See link below for more information.
