Paper Abstract

The concentrating properties of specularly reflecting pyramids, hexagons and circular cones are examined. The concentration factor is determined as a function of the coefficient of reflection and the shape and orientation of the incident sunlight. Reflector designs allowing multiple reflections for both normal and oblique incidence are considered.
