Lighting Analysis at Access Zone of Tunnel Entrance of Hong Kong-Zuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB)
MetadataShow full item record
The study aimed to evaluate several shading schemes at access zone of the tunnel entrance of HZMB in order to find the best scenario to increase the user lighting comfort. The study analysed the luminance at the tunnel entrance (L20) and energy saving in the thereshold zone. For these analyses, four shading schemes have been simulated. The schemes were the Original Scheme (Zebra, 50% solid & 50% transparent), Option 1 (Gradation Glass), Option 2 (Perforated Material), and Option 3 (No Shading). The results shows that the Original scheme has the lowest L20 luminance and consequently the highest lighting energy saving. While the Option 3 (No Shading) has the highest L20 luminance and consequently the lowest lighting energy saving.
