Title:
Effect of Shape Modification on Wind Loads of a Parabolic Trough Solar Collector 
Abstract:
Using parabolic trough solar collectors as a means of renewable electricity generation is increasing. However a main barrier to significant adoption lies in the initial investment cost. In light of this, much work has been invested into improving efficiency or reducing the materials required for construction. These two objectives tend to compete against each other when considering the wind load on a collector. This work implements an optimisation work flow utilising Kriging surrogate m...    »
