ABSTRACT:
During the period of 4 April through 23 April 1977, Honeywell Inc. performed a series of wind tunnel tests on an instrumented 1/10 scale model of its tilt-tilt, low profile heliostat in the Georgia Institute of Technology 9-foot diameter subsonic wind tunnel. The objective of the test

program was to conclusively determine the aerodynamic loading that the heliostat might experience under specified operational and survivability conditions. Using free-stream, flat plate theory analyses, the wind loading was the largest cost driver associated with the heliostat build, primarily due to the induced moments about the inner and outer heliostat axis that had to be withstood to maintain operational tracking accuracies and avoid catastrophic failures under higher wind environments.
