Abstract:

Detailed study, test, and fabrication of 2-foot and 10-foot diameter solar collectors have demonstrated that it is not practical to use a pressure distributed foam system to foam large size aluminized Mylar solar reflectors in space. The report discusses design of the mixer unit and fabrication equipment, gives results of reflectance, absorptance, and emissivity testing, and describes the fabrication of two-foot and ten-foot diameter inflatable mirrors. Details of the testing program to determine the physical properties of mechanically mixed foam are included in an appendix. Author
