Annual Collection and Storage of Solar Energy for the Heating of Buildings, Report No. 3. Semi-Annual Progress Report, August 1977 - January 1978.
Beard, J. Taylor; And Others
This report is part of a series from the Department of Energy on the use of solar energy in heating buildings. Described here is a new system for year around collection and storage of solar energy. This system has been operated at the University of Virginia for over a year. Composed of an underground hot water storage system and solar collection, the system was tested. Thermal performance results are presented. Analog and digital computer models were used to study the effect of various design modifications on collection and storage performance. (Author/MR)
