Glare and the Four Fundamental Factors in Vision

Nov 01, 1928

This paper reopens the subject of "glare." Experimental data, consisting of measurements of visibility, are presented, showing the effect of a range of glare conditions upon a wide variety of test-objects. These confirm earlier work upon the subject, and in addition show that the result of the measurement depends in a noteworthy way upon the test-object selected. Suggestions as to the improvement of present-day lighting-for-work are made, with a view to the reduction of glare to a negligible minimum.
