Özet

In this study, a solar pond having dimensions 1.5x1.5x1.5 m was constructed in the campus area of Suleyman Demirel University. It was added two semi cover having insulating and reflecting property for focusing more solar radiation on to the pond surface and reducing thermal losses from upper layer. In the computer model, optimum angle of reflector was determined in order to focus more solar radiation to the pond. Theoretical and experimental results were presented as graphically.
