The available data on physico-chemical properties of materials at high temperatures are scarce, particularly for solids. This is due to constraints arising from containment or support environment, the effect of heating techniques, and the difficulty in precision control of temperatures. These difficulties could be overcome in a solar furnace to a large extent. An account of different types of concentrators and different solar furnace configurations is presented. The major aspects in the design and construction of a high temperature solar furnace are discussed and various applications of solar furnace as a research facility are described. © 1984 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
