Research on Virtual Simulation Evaluation System for Passenger Compartments Lighting of Subway Trains in China
Lighting in the subway passenger compartments is one of the many factors influencing riding comfort. The research and design of lighting evaluation system for subway passenger compartments aim to establish evaluation standard and models for the design of light environments in this area. By using the virtual simulation technology of optical software Dialux and referring to the existing lighting standards in China, Lighting Evaluation System 1.0 (LES 1.0), a light environment evaluation system for subway passenger compartments, is developed. In the process of visual simulation, the lighting scenes of subway passenger compartments are simulated to obtain comfort evaluation index data for evaluating the comfort. On this basis, the evaluation process is constructed, including the establishment of the evaluation standard model for light environments. The research is helpful for designers and engineers to improve the design and evaluation of lighting environments in subway passenger compartments in China.
