Road Lighting

Fundamentals, Technology and Application

This book outlines the underlying principles on which modern road lighting is based, and provides the reader with knowledge of how these principles should be applied in practice. This book offers a completely fresh approach to the subject, reflecting how the technology of road lighting has progressed to keep up with the changes in lamp technology, especially in solid state light sources, and the increasing awareness of energy use and environmental issues. The book is divided into three parts. Part One describes lighting of open roads, with chapters discussing visual performance and comfort (including the effects of mesopic vision and age), and international standards and recommendations for road lighting. Lighting equipment is introduced; specifically lamps and luminaires in terms of their practical properties and features, but also the road surface and its characteristics. A chapter on Lighting Design makes the link between theory and practice, providing the reader with the knowledge needed for effective lighting design, including aspects relating to sustainability. The final chapter of Part One deals with lighting calculation conventions and measurements. Part Two is devoted to light pollution. The negative consequences of light pollution are described and tactics to restrict light pollution explained. Lighting criteria are defined that can be used by the lighting designer to guarantee installations stay within acceptable limits. International standards and recommendations on the restriction of light pollution are discussed. Part Three is devoted to tunnel lighting, with chapters discussing visual performance in tunnel environments, lighting criteria, standards and recommendations, and concluding with a chapter on tunnel lighting equipment and design. This book is a valuable resource for road lighting designers and engineers, students of lighting design and engineering, town planners, traffic engineers, environmental specialists, and lamp and luminaire developers and manufacturers.

Master an Approach Based on Fire Safety Goals, Fire Scenarios, and the Assessment of Design Alternatives Performance-Based Fire Safety Design demonstrates how fire science can be used to solve fire protection problems in the built environment. It also provides an understanding of the performance-based design process, deterministic and risk-based analysis techniques, development of design fire scenarios, trial design development and analysis, and building lifecycle management. Develop a Strategy That Meets the Fire Safety Goals for a Building Topics addressed include designing to protect people from fire, design of detection systems, smoke control systems and structural fire resistance, addressing computational and design uncertainty, and fire testing to support design development or evaluation. Identifies key attributes of performance-based design Reviews the advantages and disadvantages of performance-based design over specification-based prescriptive design Provides a series of steps offering a framework/process for performance-based design Performance-Based Fire Safety Design focuses on the development and application of performance-based fire safety design approaches. Written by leading experts in the field, this text addresses the unique features and uses of a building and helps you gain a better understanding of how a building will perform in the event of a fire.

Learning to See

A Matter of Light

In his book, Brandston¿s easy-to-understand writing style emphasizes lighting primarily as an art form. He believes one must go beyond being literate about the science of light and impresses upon the reader the importance of contextual and subjective considerations. ¿To see¿ is to use these factors to achieve a desired emotional response in the viewer and/or client. Brandston¿s holistic approach to lighting is reflected in the section titles of the book: Learning to See, Taking Responsibility, Creativity, and Communication. In the first section, he emphasizes the importance of understanding light relative to context, culture, demographics, and scale. The next section is about the ethics of delivering creativity¿within one¿ self and to the client--and the need to clearly communicate the creative vision to the client. In third section, Brandston discusses how to be creative: be loose, think, and lose one¿s inhibitions. The final section is about process: from obtaining input from the client, to drawing up a concept in a schematic design, to entering the construction phase. The book ends with appendices about lighting terms, ethics and design, and wit and wisdom.Adding to the text discussion are short vignettes and comments from legendary figures such as Oliver Sacks, Peter Boyce, Dan Ciampa, and others. Of particular interest are the author¿s sketches, offering insights into Brandston¿s thinking about his projects. Full color photographs throughout supplement the discussions, some of which are adjacent to sketches to demonstrate concept to reality. Both lighting designers and educated readers will find this book easily accessible, inspirational, and an interesting read.
