- The report describes and interprets wind-tunnel, full-scale, and field studies of wind and snow loads on flat plate solar collectors, conducted under contract for the National Bureau of Standards, and uses results of these studies and other data available in the literature to develop information, guidelines, and criteria for the design of flat plate collectors subjected to the action of wind, snow, and earthquake loads. Also given in the report are data on hail loads, based on information and studies available in the literature.
