- The test procedure used and the results obtained from an evaluation test program, conducted to obtain thermal performance data on a Solaron double glazed air solar collector under simulated conditions are described. These tests were made using the Marshall Space Flight Center Solar Simulator. A time constant test and incident angle modifier test were also conducted to determine the transient effect and the incident angle effect on the collector. These results and the results of the collector load test are also discussed. The Solaron collector absorber plate is made of 24-gage steel, the coating is baked-on black paint, the cover consists of two sheets of /sup 1///sub 8/-inch low-iron tempered glass, and the insulation is one thickness of 3 /sup 5///sub 8/-inch fiberglass batting.
