"Predicting daylight,' tn connectio
WIth the problem of natural lightin
in factories is no longer as far di
tant as it seems, according to Done
Hamilton Haines, of the engineerin
research department. "The phras
'predicting daylight,' epitomizes i:
two words the results of an investiga
tion of the problem which has bee:
carried on during the past thre
years by Prof. H. I. Higbie of th
department of engineering research
and which has just been made publi
by a 76 page bulletin issued this wee]
by the department," stated Mr. Haine
wAs a result of these researches
which were done upon the reques
and financial support of the Detroi
Steel Products company, a method ha
been determined whereby a proces
of predicting daylight has become fea-
sible. W. C. Randall, chief enginer
of the company, assisted in the inves-
Ideal Conditions Needed
"This does not mean," said Profes-
sor Higbie, "that the architect will
be able to 'predict daylight' in a given
building with accuracy, since such
predictions can be made only under
idealized conditions by the use of
curves derived from formulae, but it
does mean that a scientific basis-has
been provided for such predetermina-
"Until a very few years ago," states
the bulletin, "the science of artificial
lighting has far outstripped the science
of natural lighting, one reason being
that the means for producing artificial
light were costly and therefore had to
be conserved and economized, while
natural lighting was apparently so
entirely without cost that thee was
no necessity for economy in its use.
Necessity Is Apparent
"With the inc easing demand for
better natural lighting in such stru-
tures as school buildings and single-
story factory buildings, in which uni-
formity of natural lighting has been
one of the problems, the necessity for
devising a theoretical method of pre-
dicting daylight and then making the
widest possible practical application
of the method became apparent," said
Mr. Haines.
Throughout the investigation, it was
desirable to work with idealized con-
ditions because of the difficulty of
securinginformation on such factors
as variation of the diffusion due to
clouds, shadows from nearby build-
ings, and other things. Working
with the known factors, the room con-
ditions,, mathematical formulae gov-
erning the distribution of the light
were worked out and these predic-
tions were rechecked through exten-
sive tests on actual buildings and
scaled models of other buildings, and
the correction factors were thus ob-
tained so that they approximated the
actual facts.
Findings Are Tested

water remaining on the field once it
is completed. The system of drains
to be installed will be entirely ade-
quate to handle almost any amount of
water. The drains are to be laid
diagonally across the field. They will
be higher in the center and will drain
both ways. Each drain will cross
three others, and in case one or even
two of the pipes become clogged, the
surface water will be carried off.
One large drain is to run entirely
around the filed directly under the
front row of seats. From this posi-
tion, it will be possible to rod or
clean out every drain on the field.
Two large Wipes will carry all water
from the fielddrains to a small creek
that flows through the University
golf course.

out that has not been emphasized.
