Application of a method for the estimation of transmissivity of transparent surfaces to exterior lighting applications 2020-01-1197

The paper derives a practical method for analyzing transmission rates for light passing through transparent media like outer lenses of head lamps and tail lamps. It is shown that only two geometric parameters are needed to do the analysis, as are the angle of incidence measured to the surface normal and the surface normal itself. The surface is needed to be described mathematically - whether analytical (CAD) or discretized (FE or CFD), but no thickness is necessary. Two fields of application will be shown. The first one is the estimation of light performance or module position of head lamps in the early design process. A second one adresses the optimal time to doing outdoor weathering tests with respect to maximal impact of solar irradiation
