A Study on the Visibility Analysis Method Considering Stadium Spectator's Viewing Characteris
Kweon, Ji-Hoon; Lee, Kyung-Hoon;
The purpose of this study was to suggest an analysis method clarifying viewing characteristics with quantitative consideration of users' visual perception measured on stadium spectators' seats and its applicability to physical facility conditions. Sightline analysis method precedently used for the design of stadium seating tiers has not provided methodological capabilities feasible to consider spectator's visual perception and evaluate the difference of viewing characteristics at each viewing location. It has simply allowed local sightline studies focused on specific building sections. The analysis method suggested in this study to improve the limitations presents the following: First, the new analysis method can quantitatively distinguish the difference of viewing characteristics at each testing node. Second, it extends the analysis capability three-dimensionally, and considers locations of spectators and forms of facility components as analysis conditions. Third, the new method considers spectator's visual cognitive features as quantitative variables including visual distance, visual angle and minimum visible height. Forth, the analysis result can be provided as a format of contour map presenting overall visibility examined on whole stadium seating tiers. Finally, the suggested method has shown the applicability to the analysis on stadium spectator's viewing characteristics with performing a model analysis on a stadium facility.
