4.430 Daylighting (MIT) 4.430 Daylighting (MIT)

Description

This class provides the tools necessary for an efficient integration of daylighting issues in the overall design of a building. The fundamentals of daylighting and electric lighting are introduced and their relevance to design decisions emphasized: benefits and availability of daylight, solar radiation and sun course, photometry, vision and color perception, daylighting metrics, visual and thermal comfort, electric lighting. More advanced topics are presented and practiced through the design project and homework assignments, such as primary and advanced lighting design strategies, and design and assessment tools for lighting management.

4.493 Natural Light in Design (MIT) 4.493 Natural Light in Design (MIT)

Description

Today, computer-based simulations are becoming increasingly popular, especially when daylighting and energy conservation are amongst the key goals for a project. This two-week workshop will expose participants to the current daylighting simulation models and beyond, by introducing realistic and dynamic assessment methods through hands-on exercises and application to a design project. Open to students and practitioners. This course is offered during the Independent Activities Period (IAP), which is a special 4-week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month.

7.343 Photosynthesis: Life from Light (MIT) 7.343 Photosynthesis: Life from Light (MIT)

Description

In this course, you will journey through the web of physical, chemical, and biological reactions that collectively constitute photosynthesis. We will begin with light harvesting and follow photons to the sites of primary photochemistry: the photoreaction centers. A molecular-scale view will show in atomic detail how these protein complexes capture and energize electrons. Then we will follow the multiple pathways electrons take as they carry out their work. Consequent reactions, such as the synthesis of ATP and the reduction of CO2 during the synthesis of carbohydrates, will also be discussed in structural detail. Lastly, we will delve into the evolution of these systems and also discuss other photosynthetic strategies, such as light-driven proton pumps and anoxygenic photosynthesis.

4.411 Building Technology Laboratory (MIT) 4.411 Building Technology Laboratory (MIT)

Description

In this class, concepts of building technology and experimental methods are studied, in class and in lab assignments. Projects vary yearly and have included design and testing of strategies for daylighting, passive heating and cooling, and improved indoor air quality via natural ventilation. Experimental methods focus on measurement and analysis of thermally driven and wind-driven airflows, lighting intensity and glare, and heat flow and thermal storage. Experiments are conducted at model and full scale and are often motivated by ongoing field work in developing countries.

Uses of theatre lanterns

Description

This interactive resource introduces students to different types of lanterns used to light theatrical performances, and the different effects they produce. It emphasises lanterns may or may not have a lens and barndoors for example, and how some have light beams which can be changed while for others the light beam is fixed. The uses of profile spotlights, Fresnel spotlights, and floodlights are introduced here, together with examples of the effects they produce on a stage.

Ediswan

Description

This poster is from the Swan Collection of Tyne & Wear Museums, held at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle upon Tyne. Sir Joseph Wilson Swan was a British Physicist, Chemist and Inventor. Swan lived at Underhill, on Kells Lane North in Low Fell, Gateshead. It was here that he conducted most of his experiments in the large conservatory. His investigations in electro-chemistry led to the construction of a motor electric meter, an electric fire-damp detector, a miners' electric safety lamp. Most importantly, Swan was also a pioneer in photographic procedures such as carbon printing. It was Swan's demonstration of the light bulb at a lecture in Newcastle upon Tyne on 18 December 1878, before its later development by the American Thomas Edison that he is most famous for. Swan and Edison later collaborated in their work with the incandescent light bulb in 1883, when they founded the Edison & Swan United Electric Light Company, otherwise known as 'Ediswan.' Many items held at Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums relating to Joseph Swan offer an amazing insight in to his work as an inventor and his place in the History of Scientific progression. This set offers a small selection from these collections. This set has been produced in support of the British Science Festival 2013, held in Newcastle upon Tyne. You can find more information on the Festival here (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons.

Lighting combinations

Description

A learning object designed for Level 3 students of General art and design. It illustrates the key concepts surrounding studio lighting and the effects that can be created in the final photograph. It explores how lighting can change the mood or impact created by a photograph. It explains attributes of light, the effects of specific lighting equipment and how to measure light and calculate exposure for a shot. It also demonstrates the effects of different lighting techniques and how altering the lighting set-up can dramatically change the final image. The learning objects may be used as part of a group classroom activity, or as part of the individual study programme of the learner. The content of the objects has been designed to apply equally to the English (Level 3) and Scottish (Highers) G

4.430 Daylighting (MIT)

Description

This class provides the tools necessary for an efficient integration of daylighting issues in the overall design of a building. The fundamentals of daylighting and electric lighting are introduced and their relevance to design decisions emphasized: benefits and availability of daylight, solar radiation and sun course, photometry, vision and color perception, daylighting metrics, visual and thermal comfort, electric lighting. More advanced topics are presented and practiced through the design project and homework assignments, such as primary and advanced lighting design strategies, and design and assessment tools for lighting management.

Manual lighting presets : lighting cue sheets

Description

This Flash-based resource, aimed at students of lighting design, introduces the idea and use of the lighting cue sheet when operating a manual lighting board. The resource explains how a lighting cue signals a change of lighting state during a performance, and how the operator of a manual lighting board needs a written note of the level of faders for each cue. The resource provides an example of how a lighting cue sheet might appear.

2.717J Optical Engineering (MIT) 2.717J Optical Engineering (MIT)

Description

This course concerns the theory and practice of optical methods in engineering and system design, with an emphasis on diffraction, statistical optics, holography, and imaging. It provides the engineering methodology skills necessary to incorporate optical components in systems serving diverse areas such as precision engineering and metrology, bio-imaging, and computing (sensors, data storage, communication in multi-processor systems). Experimental demonstrations and a design project are included.

Lighting paperwork : lighting cue sheets

Description

This Flash-based resource introduces lighting cue sheets, written notes used to detail changes in lighting during a performance. The resource provides examples, together with explanatory text, of a simple cue sheet and a full list of cues. The former describes the lighting state for just one cue, whereas the latter lists details of all the cues in a performance. Students are required to click on subheadings within the resource to reveal relevant information.
