3 October 1996 Computer-simulative calculation and display for illumination system
Author Affiliations +
This project was to calculate the effect of illumination based on optical principles, structure of bulb and reflectors, and refracting unit of optical lens. This software can make designers clear of what the results are. Thus the modification time can be reduced when testing and cost will be saved. So far, a comprehensive software for simulative calculating and display of illumination of luminaire has been developed initially. This article discusses the basic principle and mathematic models of programming with respect to the structure of bulb, reflectors and optical lenses, simulation calculation and display of illumination. The article also introduces the function of the program and the results of calculation.
