  2. قدرت باورنکردنی نور خورشید هنگام تمرکز داده شدن بر روی ورق ضخیم فولادی

    با داشتن مکانی بنام بیابان شهداد در کرمان با درجه حرارت 63 درجه بالای صفر (
    گرمترین نقطه کره زمین )

    فکر نمیکنید اگر یک نیروگاه خورشیدی ساده با شبکه لوله های سیاه در قسمتی از
    آن قرار داده شود .
    میتوان انرژی الکتریکی مورد نیاز ایران عزیز را ارزان و با کمترین آلودگی
    تولید کرد ؟

  9. i really want to forge my next sword using this, or something similar. it
    will be call the solar blade and i could use it in a room of high class
    blacksmiths. it would be awesome

  10. I believe it isn’t. Ferrous alloys turn red hot way before melting (at
    around 727ºC/1333 F) and they will start to form a liquid phase when over
    1100ºC/2000 F, at this temperature it should have a yellowish, nearly
    white, intense glow. Source: The Iron-Iron Carbide Phase Diagram, been
    studying this shit for 4 years, performed several quenches on a few kinds
    of steel. From what I know of non-ferrous metal alloys, this looks like
    series 1000 (ISO I guess) Aluminum.

  13. Solar thermal collection is and always will be more efficient than
    photovoltaics. With solar thermal you are absorbing a much larger swath of
    the solar irradiance specifically in the infrared region than solar cells-
    which only absorb in the visual.

  16. Great job! Thanks for sharing!

  17. Sorry but wouldn’t that be 1 ray raising the material 100 degrees by your
    math? Missed the comment you replied to and that 1000 degrees makes much
    more sense.

  21. @neutrillium heat is heat so in that aspect there is no difference there
    would be a difference in steel making since most steel processes use coke
    fired furnaces the coke not only heats the furnace but adds most of the
    carbon which is what makes iron, steel…. well carbon and a few other

  24. Wow that could be used in many ways bet it would destroy a metor it like a
    radiation gun death ray
