Catch the Solar Wave to $ave
Division:International / Environmental Innovation
Abstract:This project examined the effectiveness of solar box collectors, testing five independent variables (depth, colour, surface area, insulation, and number of reflectors) to optimize thermal harvesting. Temperature was measured every fifteen minutes for six hours. A structure with small depth, black colour, large surface area, reflective bubble wrap insulation, and numerous reflectors retained the most heat and attained the highest temperature.
