The illumination computer model, in the context of this paper, is a computer program comprising 1. Scaled geometric models of mining machines and selected underground mine luminaries. 2. Photometric data on selected luminaries from laboratory measurements. 3. Regression-method equations to produce isolux or isofootcandle profiles (linear networks) using the photometric data. 4. The means to position the luminaires on a mining machine model to match a specific system design. 5. The means to evaluate the lighting system with respect to underground mine lighting standards.
