This course will provide a history and requirements for use in roadway lighting design. Lighting design for various roadway classifications will be discussed. Conventional lighting equipment, such as light sources, luminaires, luminaire supports and bracket arms will be presented. Requirements for average initial illumination level and uniformity ratio for conventional and high mast lighting will be provided. Design criteria will be discussed and referenced to the appropriate manual. Light pole spacing arrangements and IES light distributions will be discussed as to how they affect lighting. Even though various off-the-shelf computer programs are available to determine light pole spacing, the original basic calculations for spacing will be included in this course.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
