Abstract

The paper describes the influence of the characterisation of reflectance behaviour of tunnel pavements and wall materials on the tunnel lighting design. CIE 189 document suggests considering lambertian behaviour for inter-reflection calculations for road luminance evaluation at design stage, because, unfortunately, no bi-directional reflection data for tunnel surfaces are commonly available. This simplification is supported by the low impact of inter- reflection contribution to road luminance. A European funded research project ha the task of developing the metrological support for the road surface characterisation in new geometries of measurements. The paper suggests to apply the outcomes on new geometries to tunnel wall materials characterisation suggesting that the suggested SURFACE observation angle of 2.29° can be useful for short tunnel too, including wall surfaces.
