Abstract:

The objective of the study is to perform calculations and accumulate data that will show the interrelations among various performance parameters of a flat-plate reflector and support system capable of positional adjustment in three dimensions, and to estimate the cost of such a system. The report includes investigations of various plate designs, support structures, and drive-positioning methods, all of which are designed to meet a nominal set of conditions. The relationship between the cost and reasonable deviations from these conditions is also delineated. From these investigations and related studies of power consumption, soil conditions, etc., sufficient data are available to permit the preparation of a set of system-design specifications. Author
