GLARE AND ROADWAY LIGHTING

Current practices in the definition, computation and specification of control of glare, both disability and discomfort are discussed. Australian practice, as detailed as 1158 Part I (1973), is simple and leads to modest glare control. The viability of such practice, in which control is specified in terms of lantern classification, is being questioned. There is a complex relationship between visibility and comfort, all light technical parameters and lantern and installation parameters. However since the most sophisticated lighting performance specifications need to be finally translated into practice which can be easily engineered and administered, there is continued interest in upgrading later classification. /TRRL/
