Roadway Lighting Design
In Roadway Lighting Design, you'll learn ...
- Different types of conventional lighting equipment
- Conventional and high mast light pole requirements
- Voltage drop criteria and grounding requirements
- Maintenance of existing lighting during construction
- Calculations for light pole spacing
This Lighting Design course was developed to address the purpose and objectives of roadway lighting. Analyzing lighting needs on the various roadway classifications are discussed. Lighting justification is also included.
Different types of conventional lighting equipment are addressed. Conventional and high mast light pole requirements are defined.
Also included are sign lighting and underdeck lighting requirements, as well as maintenance of existing lighting during construction, voltage drop criteria, and grounding requirements.
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.
