Title
(EN) ILLUMINATED WATERFALL APPARATUS
(FR) APPAREIL DE CHUTE D'EAU ÉCLAIRÉE
Abstract
(EN)
An illuminated waterfall apparatus (10) having structure (20, 30) defining an inlet (220) for receiving water, an elongate outlet opening (90) that in situ extends substantially horizontally, a flow path (60) for conveying water from the inlet (220) to the outlet opening (90) from which in operation the water falls in a freely falling stream (200), and a light transmission solid (20) for transmitting light. The light transmission solid (20) is arranged to at least partly define an outer periphery of the flow path (60). The apparatus (10) further includes one or more light sources (50) arranged to project light into the light transmission solid (20) and an optical feature (110) associated with the light transmission solid (20) and being at least approximately parallel to the outlet opening (90) for along the length of the outlet opening (90) deflecting light transmitted by the light transmission solid (20) into the water so that the light is transmitted by the stream of water (200) falling from the outlet opening (90) to produce a decorative effect viewable from in front of the outlet opening (90).
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un appareil de chute d'eau éclairée (10) ayant une structure (20, 30) définissant un orifice d'entrée (220) pour recevoir de l'eau, une ouverture d'orifice de sortie allongée (90) qui s'étend in situ sensiblement horizontalement, un trajet d'écoulement (60) pour transporter l'eau de l'orifice d'entrée (220) à l'ouverture d'orifice de sortie (90) à partir duquel en fonctionnement l'eau tombe dans un flux tombant de manière libre (220), et un solide de transmission de lumière (20) pour transmettre de la lumière. Le solide de transmission de lumière (20) est agencé de façon à définir au moins partiellement une périphérie externe du trajet d'écoulement (60). L'appareil (10) comprend en outre une ou plusieurs sources de lumière (50) agencées pour projeter la lumière dans le solide de transmission de lumière (20) et une caractéristique optique (110) associée au solide de transmission de lumière (20) et étant au moins approximativement parallèle à l'ouverture d'orifice de sortie (90) pour, le long de la longueur de l'ouverture d'orifice de sortie (90), dévier une lumière transmise par le solide de transmission de lumière (20) dans l'eau, de telle sorte que la lumière est transmise par le flux d'eau (220) tombant de l'ouverture d'orifice de sortie (90) pour produire un effet décoratif observable en face de l'ouverture d'orifice de sortie (90).
