HB-10-11 IES Lighting Handbook, 10th Edition

Product ID: HB-10-11

July 2011

Advance your knowledge of lighting
Successful lighting professionals must be able to incorporate into their work many new technological and scientific developments. Examples: solid state lighting sources; humans’ perception of light as they age, sustainability and the integration of daylighting with electric lighting; the effects of light on human health; to name a few. Clients rely on and, indeed, expect lighting practitioners to know their specialties and to make well-informed decisions and recommendations on the client’s behalf. That is why the 10th edition of the new IES Lighting Handbook is an essential knowledge reference for anyone in lighting. The 10th edition brings together some of the best minds in the lighting community to present the current state of knowledge as it relates to lighting and lighting design. With reliable and comprehensive information in a single source, practitioners can approach projects with confidence.

Changes to the new edition:

New illuminance determination procedure consisting of visual age-based illuminance ranges and mesopic adaptation
Extensive updates on light sources, including solid state lighting
Holistic and complementary daylighting and electric lighting strategies
More extensive and specific qualitative lighting design criteria such as subjective impressions (psychological factors) and architectural spatial factors
Broader quantitative criteria such as illuminance uniformities, power and energy aspects, light trespass, and light pollution
In-depth coverage of sustainability practices: new chapters on daylighting, controls, sustainability, commissioning and energy management


Provides a compendium of what is known that directly relates to lighting and lighting design
Concise explanation of material
Content and format tailored to those involved in lighting decisions including practitioners, designers, architects, and engineers
Four color throughout; 600+ illustrations that enhance understanding
Conveniently-referenced tabular information is exemplified with numerous photographs and illustrations
Sustainable practice embedded throughout: refinement of light level criteria, definitive criteria related to brightness and user impressions, factors influencing power and energy use for lighting, and methods to minimize light trespass and light pollution

Comments from Reviewers

“The 10th edition of the IES Lighting Handbook has been thoroughly updated to reflect the current state of lighting knowledge and practice. There is increased emphasis on sustainability, the solid state lighting ‘revolution’, and daylighting and lighting control system strategies as well as the latest legislative trends and industry practices. It is THE comprehensive reference and resource book covering the broad spectrum of Illumination Engineering. This book has clearly been written with the lighting practitioner in mind but will appeal to anybody involved with the various facets of lighting, from light source development to lighting design, from the physiological aspects of light to preparation of contracts. The Handbook emphasizes applications, contains many ready-to-use formulas and tables that give solutions to common problems. It is an indispensible tool! “

“The Handbook is the most thorough and comprehensive revision in the past forty years. Not only is the format completely new, but the scope and depth of the subjects are unprecedented. This new edition is both an authoritative source of data and an eloquent explanation of the “how” and “why” of the IES recommendations. It is quite simply the best Handbook ever.”
Alan Laird Lewis, OD, PhD, FIES
