Course Description

This Lighting Design course was developed to discuss the purpose and objectives of roadway lighting. Analyzing lighting needs on the various roadway classifications are discussed. Lighting justification is also included.

The following conventional lighting equipment is described:
light sources
luminaries
luminaire supports
bracket arms

The following conventional and high mast light pole requirements are defined:
average initial illumination levels
uniformity ratios

Also included are sign lighting and underdeck lighting requirements. Maintenance of existing lighting during construction, voltage drop criteria, and grounding requirements are also included.

Design criteria is discussed and referenced to the appropriate manual. Light pole spacing arrangements and IES light distributions are 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 are included in this course.

The course is designed to provide a basic knowledge of Lighting Design from which a person can begin the process of creating lighting plans for a roadway project.

This is a good introduction to highway lighting design. The course is very beneficial. A referenced link in the text on P.19 did not work (cut/paste nor typing it in). The text references 3 cutoff fixtures (P.16) while Question #12 referred to a "full cutoff" fixture.

Good course. It is thorough enough yet invites the engineer to dig in deeper in applying the actual design.
