Abstract
This work presents a mathematical analysis of the propagation of luminous flux in the curvatures of optical fibres based on the equation of a torus. The influence of the fibre curvature on the value of the luminous flux transmission coefficient was determined. On the basis of this analysis a computer program has been designed enabling to determine the transmission coefficient of the optical fibre. Comparing the data obtained from the computer simulation with the data from experimental verification it may be stated that the program determines the loss factor resulting from the fibre curvature quite well. The error between the actual measurements and the results obtained from the computer simulation ranged from 1,8% to 12,2%. The program may be a useful tool for designing lighting optical fibres used in various types of optical fibre systems.
