An empirical study was carried out to examine the effects of color combination and ambient illumination on visual perception time using TFT-LCD. The effect of color combination was broken down into two subfactors, luminance contrast ratio and chromaticity contrast. Analysis indicated that the luminance contrast ratio and ambient illumination had(More)
The results of Experiment 1 indicated that noise and illumination intensity have a significant effect on character identification performance, which was better at 30 dBA than at 60 and 90 dBA, and better at 500 and 800 lux than at 200 lux. However, the interaction of noise and illumination intensity did not significantly affect visual performance. The(More)
This study proposed using waste frying oil rather than refined vegetable oil as an effective way to reduce the raw material cost of producing biodiesel. In addition, the ultrasonic-assisted two-step catalyzing Process was first adopted for the production of biodiesel from waste frying oil. The results show that the total reaction time was less than 50 min(More)
This study investigated the effects of lighting color, illumination intensity, and text color on visual performance. Experiment 1 conducted character identifying test and Experiment 2 conducted reading comprehension test. Results of experiment 1 indicated that all the three independent variables had significant effects on mean percentage of character(More)
The two-step catalyzing process for biodiesel production from waste vegetable oil was assisted by both co-solvent and microwave irradiation. Central composite design (CCD) was employed to optimize the reaction conditions. Optimal reaction conditions of the first step were alcohol to oil molar ratio of 9:1, catalyst (H2SO4) amount 1 wt%, reaction temperature(More)
A laboratory study was carried out to investigate the effects of illumination, viewing distance, and lighting color on perception time with center high-mounted stop lamps comprised of light-emitting diodes. Analysis indicated that illumination, viewing distance, and lighting color are significant factors in perception time. Low illumination resulted in(More)
Two experiments assessed effects of color preference and brand-logo familiarity on recall performance. Exp. 1 explored the color preferences, using a forced-choice technique, of 189 women and 63 men, Taiwanese college students ages 18 to 20 years (M = 19.4, SD = 1.5). The sequence of the three most preferred colors was white, light blue, and black and of(More)
This study investigated the errors in the perceived height of virtual cones presented on the screen. 80 students (50 women, 30 men; M age = 18.8 yr., SD = 1.2 using a duodecimal system) participated in the study. They judged the height of virtual cones in several conditions: (a) different spaces between the items in the array (2, 4, and 6 cm); (b) different(More)
This study analyzed psychophysical data from younger and elderly people on the influence of spacing between vertical lines, exposure time, and number of vertical lines in a stimulus for visual performance. A total of 50 elderly people and 31 graduate students participated in the experiment. Nine levels of spacing between lines (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24,(More)
