Abstract:

This report presents design criteria and cost analysis for methods for the sizing and justification of solar heat collectors for potable water heaters and space heaters. Sufficient information is presented to enable engineers to design solar space and water heating systems or conduct basic feasibility studies preparatory to design of large installations. Both retrofit and new installations are considered. This report has been substantially revised from the previous edition Beck and Field, 1977. However, most of the revision is in Section 2.0, where more material of an exploratory nature has been added. Section 3.0, which contains the calculation method and worksheets, is largely the same, except that the economic analysis has been revised and new tables have been added to provide a self-contained source of meteorological data and collector test data.
