Title A simplified formula for discomfort glare.
Bibliographic information Oct. 1976, Vol.6, No.1, p.10-20. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract This article deals with the basis for criteria established in a report of the Illuminating Engineering Socieity (RQQ Report No.3) on a method for determining the acceptability of a luminaire from the standpoint of visual comfort probability in large rooms. It is based on formulae for a discomfort glare rating, given by Guth and Goodbar. The author gives an evaluation for the luminance value L of a luminaire and describes a computing method for assessing discomfort glare.
