In this paper, the authors discuss the results of a measurement survey of artificial optical radiation emitted by 8 W LED tubes suitable for the substitution of 18 W fluorescent lamps used for general lighting. For both types of lamps, three different color temperatures were chosen, 3000 K, 4000 K, and 6000 K. These measurements were performed to evaluate(More)
In the last few years, to meet the need of build efficient homes in a short time and with maximum constructive simplification, lightweight prefabricated building systems have proved to be particularly suitable, especially in geographical areas which must deal with emergency situations (i.e., temporary housing). In this paper the winter and summer thermal(More)
Ecological factors such as environmental and climatic conditions affect the growth of ornaments in ungulates. Studies about their influence can reveal key information on individual life histories and detect the events that can have important evolutionary consequences. Among the ecological factors commonly thought to play a role in such ecological processes,(More)
The risk assessment from exposure to artificial optical radiation (AOR) has long been analyzed. Minor attention has been paid to incoherent sources used in offices (e.g. lamps, LED for lighting). The LED is becoming one of the most widespread light sources. Due to spectral characteristics of white LEDs some concerns have been raised regarding their safety(More)
The energy audit for a building is a procedure designed mainly to obtain adequate knowledge of the energy consumption profile, identify, and quantify opportunities for energy savings by a cost-benefit analysis and report, clearly and comprehensively, about the obtained results. If the audit is referred to a building with a significant historical and(More)

During the design and realization processes of an indoor work environment there is the need to guarantee to the future occupants adequate health and wellbeing conditions. Both conditions are strictly related to the human perception of the environment, and depends on four basic factors: thermal environment, lighting, acoustics, and indoor air quality. Such(More)
Supplemental feeding for ungulates is a widespread practice in many human-dominated landscapes across Europe and North America, mainly intended to seasonally support populations. Surprisingly, little consideration was given so far to the effect of supplemental feeding on ungulate spatial ecology at a large scale, in management and conservation studies.(More)
In this paper the Authors describe and discuss the results of an extensive evaluation campaign of optical radiation emitted by equipment provided with incoherent sources, commonly used in the hospitals of the Tuscany Region (Italy). The results of the evaluation campaign can be a useful database of technical information for the personnel involved in the(More)
