Final report, Volume 7. Science Applications, Incorporated field test facility preliminary design A1 Midwest Research Institute (Kansas City, Mo., )., United States., Dept. of Energy., Geothermal Division., United States., Dept. of Energy., Office of Scientific and Technical Information., PB United States. Dept. of Energy. Geothermal Division ; distributed by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information, U.S. Dept. of Energy PP Washington, D.C; Oak Ridge, Tenn. YR 1985 AB This report contains the preliminary design of an SCEAS Engineering Test Facility (ETF). The ETF is a 3600 m² fluid roof greenhouse with an inflated plastic film roof to maintain a clean environment for the fluid roof and to protect the inner glazing from hail and other small missiles. The objective of the design was the faithful scaling of the commercial facility to ensure that the ETF results could be extrapolated to a commercial facility of any size. Therefore, all major features, including the photovoltaic power system, an integral water desalination system and even the basic structural module have been retained. The design is described in substantial detail in the body of this report, with appendices giving the drawings and specifications.
