Evaluation of mine illumination systems using numerical modeling.
Proceedings of the Fourth WVU Conference on Coal Mine Electrotechnology, August 2-4, 1978, Morgantown, West Virginia. Morgantown, WV: West Virginia University, 1978 Aug; :3.1-3.13
The analysis of a machine-luminaire configuration is a time consuming process requiring the construction of a machine mockup, installation of a designated lighting arrangement, and an extensive set of illumination measurements. This entire process, however, is well suited to computer analysis. By simulating the machine geometry and the characteristics of the desired luminaires, the incident light levels can be calculated at the required set of points. This Bureau of Mines paper presents a general description of the techniques involved in performing this simulation.
