Adham I. Giyasov, Doctor of Technical Science, Professor. He graduated from the Tajik Polytechnic Institute in 1975. At present, he is Professor of department “Design of buildings and structures” of National Research Moscow State University of Civil Engineering. His research interests: energy efficient buildings, architectural and construction physics, insolation, aerodynamics, urban ecology

To solve the problem of designing buildings with taking into account modern hygienic and technical requirements, it is of great importance to take into account the factors of the natural and climatic environment, in which the radiant energy of the sun plays an important role, determining the insolation-lighting-heating regime of the premises. The natural lighting of the premises is studied and the prerequisites for the refinement and development of the methodology for calculating the natural indoor lighting of the premises taking into account the insolation conditions for a specific region of the equatorial countries are formulated. Proposals for improving the methodology for calculating the daylighting in the room, taking into account the insolation components, have been developed.
