omdex, the computer show held every fall in Las Vegas, was called the Computer Dealer Expo. The chemical process show known as the Pittsburgh Conference hasn’t been held in Pittsburgh in years. What’s in a name? “Scanning the Spectrum,” the design column that debuted in LD+A last month was originally to be named “Out of the Shadows.” But we decided it implied many designs were still in a state of stygian darkness. (It also sounded like a bad soap opera.) SOMA, Engineering for the Human Body, was a magazine I once

and some 6000 others in favor of Edsel. The automotive name game offers other items of interest. The name Columbia was scrapped for Mercury’s new minivan when consumer research suggested a link

with drugs. Taurus was the astrological sign of the wife of Ford’s vice president of product development. Even global communications can be misinterpreted. In Taiwan, Pepsi Cola bottlers used the “come alive with Pepsi” slogan until marketers realized the phrase translated literally as “Pepsi brings your ancestors back to life.” Tortured English translations abound. “Please leave your values at the front desk,” read a sign at a French hotel. In a Norwegian cocktail lounge, ladies were requested not to have children at the bar. In a Leipzig elevator: “Don’t enter the lift backwards and only when lit up.” In a Belgrade elevator: “To move the cabin, push for wishing floor. If the cabin should enter more persons, each one should press a number of wishing floor. Driving is then going alphabetically by national order.” As a kid, I won a bicycle from Rice Krispies by naming the twowheeler “Roama.” I was recently looking for a contest in which I could recycle my prize-winning moniker. But now that I’ve shared this name with the readers of LD+A, I will have to look for a new name and game. Gotta go. The engine’s idling in my Utopian Turtletop.

edited. Soma, of Greek derivation, means body. Shortly after its debut, I discovered a nudist magazine with the same name, but its publisher had failed to register the name. Today, I believe SOMA refers to a district in San Francisco south of Market Street. Associations have it easy in the naming game compared with automakers. The poet Marianne Moore was asked by Ford Motor to pick a name for a then-experimental car. Her offerings included Silver Sword, Resilient Bullet, Andante con Moto, Varsity Stroke, and Utopian Turtletop. Ford rejected her suggestions

Pardon me. but cannot afford it. The electrical savings can be substantial with a relatively low installation cost. long term benefit analysis can also be done with T8 lamps.

Extended-life lamps are rated for Stan Walerczyk is director of lighting at Sun Industries. especially highlumen extended-life F32T8 850s. So the cost/life pricing is about the same. The retrofit option is often very cost effective when the parts and labor cost of the existing group relamping is ‘deducted’ from the retrofit parts and labor cost.

Adding all of the benefits of the extended life lamps. Often in lighting. covering their modules with cardboard or turning off the ceiling fixtures and bringing in their own floor or table fixtures. Following is an example of how these lamps and extra-efficient ballasts can work together. For example. Each extended-life lamp costs about $. because the payback time occurs even before standard-life lamps burn out. Two extra breaks per week. But check if office workers are wearing baseball hats. all fluorescent lamps will have to be recycled which costs about $. but check the number of sick days and talk with the workers. the substantial yearly savings. if I did not state that additional savings may also be achieved by using scotopically enhanced lamps.

Again this is difficult to quantify. but the group relamping schedule would be increased from four to six years. Typically the benefits of the more expensive extended-life lamps are not included in payback. With longer life lamps.

WSU students selected our team. This high degree of participation meant that the building had to provide the widest possible array of active spaces. Washington State University students were asked by the Student Referendum Committee of ASWSU to vote on the construction of the WSU Student Recreation Center. Students stepped up to the plate. The state-of-the-art building contains the largest student weight and cardio room in a recreational facility in the nation. volleyball. badminton. interviews and telephone surveys. focus groups. south. Oregon. with a total of 17. An exceptionally high turnout of student voters indicated over 63 percent approval for the project. which was led by Yost Grube Hall Architecture of Portland.(left)The open spaces in the weight machine area allow deep daylight penetration. Something for Everyone Nearly 25 different committees participated in the design process and more than 800 students gave direct input in open committee meetings. Four racquetball courts are LD+A/July 2002 25 . The Design Team Following the successful student referendum. and an adjoining leisure pool is equipped for water volleyball and basketball.

At the time ( . Yost Grube Hall developed a digital model of the natatorium. they offer four levels of lighting based upon the daylight available. heat gain. Maximizing daylight in the building was identified as a key design criterion because of the energy savings and because the students knew it would create a warm and inviting character for the building. 1998) we were evaluating both Lightscape and AccuRender. yoga. Let the Sun Shine In… Merely pleasing all the students wasn’t enough. The far north latitude of the project (46° 44') dictated careful attention to sun shading due to very flat solar angles in the winter and very steep angles in the summer. Objects at the bottom of the “digital pool” appeared from different angles at various times of the day. surfaces and materials were added. Final meter readings in the finished space varied by less than 5 percent compared to the predictions in the computer models in both daylit and electric-lit conditions. In the actual space. showing their visibility under different conditions. our team prepared a 3-D computer model that we could use to test light levels. and decided to process the calculations in both 26 LD+A/July 2002 software packages as a comparison. The model was also calculated and rendered with several electric lighting scenarios. …the Natatorium… The architect. reflection and glare are daily issues in most natatoriums. To make the daylighting strategies work. The design team decided to calculate the daylighting at nine times throughout the year: morning. resulting in long hours in front of the computer. there are 25 specific areas that make use of sustainable design principles. as any pool operator can tell you. such as a seasonal on-site stormwater retention pond. noon and evening for both solstices and the equinox. Windows in gyms can put sun in the players’ eyes. Other issues create serious safety concerns. and dance. Some of these issues are merely annoying. photocells step the indirect lighting as the natural contribution changes. A single classroom is used for meetings and wellness courses. such as the noise generated when voices ricochet off water and glass. Altogether. the team was satisfied with the results of both the daylighting simulations and the indirect electric lighting scheme. (right) Lightshelves eliminate direct sunbeams in the gyms and natatorium.(left) Gymnasiums are lighted with 8-lamp compact fluorescent sports lights. The WSU student body also wanted to create a new model for sustainability in recreation center design. But daylighting recreational spaces is easier said than done.

Outdoor lighting can be a potent tool in helping these various stakeholders achieve their INTERPRETING OUTDOOR LUMINAIRE CUTOFF LRC’s John Bullough proposes a supplemental classification for quantifying a luminaire upward luminous flux goals. For these classifications. or 0 degrees. 44 LD+A/July 2002 www. Light emitted in the 80-90 degrees zone is more likely to contribute to glare and light trespass. Landlords often want to enhance the perceptions of safety and security on their properties.

This hypothetical luminaire can be classified as a cutoff luminaire. The luminous intensity at any angle between and including 80 and 90 degrees from nadir is 100 candelas.nous intensity (in candelas) anywhere between 80 degrees and 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 10 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire cutoff: the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere at or above 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 2. Consider the hypothetical luminous intensity distribution shown in Figure 2. The definitions are in terms of luminous intensity (candelas). and the luminous intensity www. and nearly 16 percent of the lamp lumens above 90 degrees from nadir. also for a luminaire equipped with a 1000-lumen lamp. which is 2. do not in any way affect the cutoff classification of the . The luminous intensity 90 degrees from nadir and at any angle above is 25 candelas. or that no more than 2. exceeding 10 percent (100 candelas) of the numerical value There is increasing awareness of ways that outdoor lighting can detract from enjoyment of the nighttime environment through light pollution luminaire. Interestingly. The luminous intensity at one angle between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir is 125 candelas. at angles below 80 degrees from nadir. and the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 10 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire semicutoff: the luminous intensity (in candelas) anywhere at or above 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed five percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire.5 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the (in candelas) anywhere between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir does not numerically exceed 20 percent of the luminous flux (in lumens) of the lamp or lamps in the luminaire noncutoff: there is no limitation of luminous intensity in the zone above the luminaire’s maximum luminous intensity Careful consideration of these classification definitions is very important when evaluating outdoor luminaires for their potential to cause light trespass or light pollution.) Conversely. no more than 10 percent of the lamp luminous flux is emitted between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir.5 percent of the numerical value of the lamp lumens. for a luminaire equipped with a 1000lumen lamp. (The distribution of the remaining 73 percent of lamp lumens. but the values are made with reference to luminous flux (lumens). neither of these assumptions is correct. a luminaire with this distribution would emit 11 percent of the lamp lumens between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir. consider another hypothetical luminous intensity distribution. Casual skimming of these definitions could lead one to assume that for a cutoff luminaire.iesna. shown in Figure 3.5 percent of the lamp luminous flux is emitted above 90 degrees from nadir. In fact. which is 10 percent of the numerical value of the lamp lumens.

consult a zonal luminous flux summary prepared by the luminaire’s manufacturer. understanding the proper application of the IESNA classifications. it is not necessarily true that a cutoff luminaire will emit a smaller proportion of its luminous flux upward than a semicutoff (or even a noncutoff) luminaire. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy. Good outdoor lighting is likely to meet goals such as those outlined at the beginning of this article. Such a luminaire might emit only a small fraction of the lamp luminous flux upward. an inefficient “globe” luminaire made of a poorly transmitting material used in a parking lot. Certainly. and illuminance often relates directly to issues of light trespass. Consider. about half of the total light used in this application would be emitted directly upward. Perhaps. The proposed classifications above would tend to penalize inefficient luminaires. with the result of less total light emitted directly upward for a given application. though. An IESNA member. To estimate the luminous flux emitted directly upward by a particular luminaire. such as the amount of luminous flux emitted upward. and when all is said and done. Bullough is a scientist and adjunct assistant professor of architecture at the Lighting Research Center. the distribution of the remaining 96 percent of lamp lumens at angles below 80 degrees from nadir do not impact the luminaire’s cutoff classification. for example. this proposed system of classification is just a starting point for a conversation about these issues. An installation of such luminaires would probably require more luminaires in order to achieve the light levels required for a parking lot because of the luminaire’s low efficiency. it could not be considered a full-cutoff or even a cutoff luminaire. but it would also emit only a small fraction downward. and about one percent of the lamp lumens above 90 degrees from nadir. www. Class 0: the luminaire emits no luminous flux directly upward (above 90 degrees) Class 1: the luminaire emits no more than 5 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Class 2: the luminaire emits more than 5 percent but no more than 10 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Class 3: the luminaire emits more than 10 percent but no more than 20 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Class 4: the luminaire emits more than 20 percent of its luminous flux directly upward Note that the classification scheme above is quantified in terms of the luminaire’s luminous flux rather than that of the lamps it houses. even if the luminaires are equipped with the same lamp. Bullough has written or co-written more than forty technical publications on the psychological and biological effects of . However. perhaps the lighting community will decide that no supplemental classifications are needed. Such a luminaire would emit only three percent of the lamp lumens between 80 and 90 degrees from nadir. for example. New York. serve to emphasize the caution that is required when interpreting the various cutoff classifications. this luminaire cannot be classified as a cutoff luminaire even though it emits significantly less light upward than the hypothetical luminaire in Figure 2. Knowing the luminous intensity from a luminaire in a particular direction is a key step in estimating the illuminance on a surface from that luminaire in that direction. As a result. while minimizing possible negative impacts. The luminous intensity at one angle above 90 degrees from nadir is 40 candelas. for example. these luminous intensity distribution examples represent extreme cases. (As with the example above. even if this same luminaire were fully shielded so that it emitted no light above 90 degrees. About 50 percent of this luminaire’s luminous flux would be emitted directly upward and about 50 percent downward. A full cutoff luminaire. exceeding 2. Indeed. because of its higher-than permitted intensity at one angle between 80 and 90 degrees.5 percent (25 candelas) of the numerical value of the lamp lumens. this proposed system of classification is just a starting point for a conversation about these issues.of the lamp lumens.
