Solar shading, radiation, systems and building geometry

A PC-tool to calculate shadows on arbitrarily oriented surfaces. For both, active use of solar energy (domestic hot water, photovoitaics) as well as for passive solar architecture, shading or lighting of planes plays an important role SOMBRERO provides quantitative results for the shading of collectors or windows by buildings, trees, overhangs or the horizon.
