'Lighting Engineering: Applied Calculations' describes the mathematical background to the calculation techniques used in lighting engineering and links them to the applications with which they are used. The fundamentals of flux and illuminance, colour, measurement and optical design are covered in detail. There are detailed discussions of specific applications, including interior lighting, road lighting, tunnel lighting, floodlighting and emergency lighting. The authors have used their years of experience to provide guidance for common mistakes and useful techniques including worked examples and case studies.
This comprehensive text examines the technical, practical, and aesthetic aspects of lighting design. With its focus on quality, it demonstrates how lighting designers provide functional, safe, and aesthetically pleasing designs for both residential and commercial interiors. The author's extensive research integrates developments in the field with an introduction to lighting systems, giving readers a foundation for applying design principles to lighting projects.
Zoe Luce is a successful interior designer in the Arizona town of Whispering Springs who's developed an unusual career specialty-helping recently divorced clients redesign their homes, to help them forget the past and start anew. But Zoe knows that some things can't be covered up with a coat of paint. And when she senses that one of her clients may be hiding a dark secret, she enlists P.I. Ethan Truax to find the truth.
Working together, they solve the mystery . . . and barely escape with their lives. But Ethan's exquisite detection skills are starting to backfire on Zoe: she never wanted to let him find out about her former life; she never wanted to reveal her powerful, inexplicable gift for sensing the history hidden within a house's walls; she never wanted him to know that "Zoe Luce" doesn't really exist. She never wanted to fall in love with him.
Now, no matter how much she resists, Ethan may be her only hope-because the people she's been running from have found her. And just when Zoe dares to dream of a normal life and a future with the man she loves, her own past starts to shadow her every step-and threatens to take her back into a nightmare.
In this book, the leading edge of basin research is presented in the course of a detailed case study on an oblique convergent margin. Sedimentary basins are rich in natural resources and often overlain by densely populated residential areas, then draw attention of technical experts who are engaged in the field of civil engineering, disaster prevention, natural resource exploration, and so forth. Such a pragmatic viewpoint aside, clastic materials filling basins are a good example of the developmental process of the Earths surface. Detailed analysis reveals paleoenvironmental changes linked to eustatic sea-level changes and the uplift and exhumation process of hinterlands governed by longstanding tectonic episodes. The authors review the latest analytical methods of the gravity anomaly. Apart from conventional gravimetric prospecting, recently developed innovative methodologies have tremendous usability to aid in comprehending the deep three-dimensional structure of the sedimentary basins. Combining stratigraphic/sedimentological data of numerous boreholes and high resolution profiles of the reflection seismic survey, the authors visualize the deep interior of a fault-related basin in the Japanese Islands as an ideal example that has been studied by many researches and never been understood in a multidisciplinary way. Surely, this book provides audiences with an integrated vision of the basin evolution processes under the influence of dynamic spatial and temporal changes in tectonic regimes on active plate margins.
Armageddon is over. The demons won. And yet somehow . . . the world has continued. Survivors worship patron demons under a draconian system of tributes and rules. These laws keep the demons from warring among themselves, and the world from slipping back into chaos.
