This course emphasizes how to design roadway lighting installations that are effective and that meet various standards and requirements. While instruction focuses on use of the illuminance ("foot candle") method, students will also learn about the luminance method. The course covers a wide range of relevant topics, from human factors, including the eye, vision, and perception, to lighting terminology, including light control, luminaire types, and design principles, with reference to IES standard practice, the AASHTO guidelines, and FHWA's Roadway Lighting Handbook. The class combines lectures, hands-on classroom exercises, and case studies.

Topics Include
luminaire design
photometric data
IES luminaire classification
light sources and ballasts
IES Standard Practice (RP-8)
planning and lighting design principles
economics of roadway lighting, maintenance, and energy considerations

What You Will Learn
Students learn key skills needed to design roadway lighting installations using the illuminance method as well as guidelines/standards affecting their design.

Who Should Attend
The course is targeted for public agency staff or consultants with little or no experience in designing or planning roadway lighting. The class also benefits those seeking some refresher training on the current state-of-the-practice.
