Daylighting Performance and Design
Daylighting is the process of incorporating natural lighting into the design of buildings. The new edition of this concise resource makes theory, calculations, and execution crystal clear with straight-to-the-solution examples and uncluttered language. In a practical, applied approach, this book covers daylighting strategies, materials, and methods of construction, including significant advances in lighting and daylighting technology.

Page 293 - daylight illuminance at a point on a given plane due to the light received directly or indirectly from a sky of assumed or known luminance distribution to the illumination on a horizontal plane due to an unobstructed hemisphere
Page 294 - perfectly diffusing surface emitting or reflecting light at the rate of 1 lumen per square foot; or the average
Page 296 - incident light is redistributed uniformly in all possible directions in such a way that the luminance is the same in all directions.
Page 294 - differences within the visual field sufficiently high to cause annoyance, discomfort, or loss in visual performance.
Page 294 - which, after reflection at a surface or passage through a medium, travels on in numerous directions.
