GLARE AS A CRITERION FOR QUALITY IN STREET LIGHTING

A SIMPLE METHOD IS GIVEN FOR DETERMINING THE DEGREE OF DISCOMFORT GLARE IN STREET LIGHTING INSTALLATIONS. RESULTS ARRIVED AT BY THIS METHOD ARE COMPARED WITH THE GLARE PRODUCED IN EXISTING INSTALLATIONS. COMPARISON IS ALSO MADE WITH THE RULES LAID DOWN IN THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PUBLIC LIGHTING IN GREAT BRITAIN. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT STANDARDS FOR THE LIMITATION OF GLARE, FOR USE IN STREET LIGHTING CODES, CAN BE DETERMINED ON THE BASIS OF THIS METHOD. /HSL/
