Title Dazzle at welding.
Bibliographic information 1978, Vol.29, No.3-4, p.199-209. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract The causes of effects of glare (effects of luminance distribution in the workers' visual field on glare, relation between glare and workplace lighting) are discussed. The degree of glare is estimated by mathematical formulae. Welding with a thin electrode may be more difficult than with a thick one because of an uneven distribution of luminance. Glass screen permeability can be calculated in order to select the proper glass for given luminance conditions.
