Alternative term: Transmission Factor

The ratio of the transmitted luminous flux (Ft) to the incident flux (Fo).

Symbol: T

Note: Where mixed transmission occurs, the (total) transmittance may be divided into two parts, Regular Transmittance (T r) and Diffuse Transmittance (Td),corresponding respectively to the two modes of transmission referred to in 2-1-170 and 2-1-175.

T = T r+ Td
