Roadway Brightness and Illumination as Related to Luminaire Distributions

Apr 01, 1961

Instead of specifying only light/brightness values for roadway lighting, the authors propose the development of application charts to be derived from a series of system data for pavement brightness, obstacle brightness, veiling brightness and illumination values, plotted vs. varying street width and spacing conditions to enable the overall quality of the installation to be judged.
