Analyzing Von Mises Stress and Total Deformation of Different Shaped Channeled Solar Collector Copper Alloy Absorber Plates
Abstract: 
This study looks into explaining the potential for solar collector integration in the Denton area. In addition, two differently shaped channels are compared to understand the mechanical properties of their strength by looking at deformation and Von Mises stress analysis. The comparisons are undergone by looking at the respective analyses of a statically applied load via Ansys.
