Building Systems Design Series Volume 3: Domestic Plumbing Design / Edition 1by Jack L. Burton
Pub. Date: 08/16/1999
Publisher: Pearson Education
Part of a building systems design workbook series covering everything from HVAC to plumbing, this comprehensive guide teaches the basic principles and concepts of lighting and its sources, and includes numerous application problems for "hands-on" learning. Provides a thorough introduction to lighting, and covers all standard design procedures. Divides material into two parts: the first presents three unconventional and creative sample problems for each new concept discussed using common formulas and criteria (the first problem is worked out entirely, the second is guided practice, and the third is unsolved; solutions to all problems are provided); the second part of the book contains multiple word application problems that mirror real-life scenarios. IES schedules, lighting charts and tables are included, and users also receive companion design software written in BASIC (LightSizer version 1.0) that gives them a practical training tool for planning and designing fluorescent and incandescent lighting fixtures for interior use. For professional in drafting, engineering, and civil/construction technology.
