Methods for determining solar radiation levels based on end use location for development of test conditions in an accelerated weathering device
Abstract:A fundamental factor in any artificial testing instrument is the unit's capability of accurately reproducing the environment to which the materials will experience in their end-use application. Using a sophisticated modeling system the spectral power distribution of sunlight is critically defined and characterized. Once the defined spectrum is established a correct artificial light source / filtering system providing the characteristics desired can be selected. Several laboratory based solar radiation sources which are commonly used in simulating sunlight each with advantages and disadvantages are compared. In the comparison basic and advanced solar radiation measuring and monitoring systems are employed.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
