Passive Solar Dome Home
Passive Solar Dome Home

I uploaded a copy of my project for the National Science Foundation's workshop on solar energy and energy engineering that was done in 1981 (the last year of the workshop). It goes through a significant background of passive solar design, alternative energy sources and energy efficiency. The calculations section contain gross over-simplifications and are not realistic, but I'm still impressed at the paper that was done during a few weeks in the summer, while attending class each day as well.

Here is a link to the article filed in the "Projects" section of my website:
