    Week 7 : Artificial lighting design

    Week Description :

    In this week students will be introduce to artificial lighting design and the use of computer simulation tool (Dialux) for building modeling, lighting selection and mounting, and lighting calculation 

    Week objectives:

    1. Student should be able to understand the artificial light sources (and how to calculate and measure them
    2. Student will have a holistic look at computer aided illumination design tool for artificial lighting design (Dialux)
    3. Student will be able to getting started with the simulation tool (Dialux


    Offline activity - Lab. work exercises

    Work Plan:

    1. Getting started with Dialux (the simulation tool for artificial lighting design analysis) …  See Dialux tool  
    2. Exploring the main parts of the software (project manager, 3D Cad window, and the guide menu) … offline exercise
    3. Introducing the function for each part above in number 2 ..  see Dialux manual
