Lunar Oven


Planning of a solar oven with heat storage

Planning, simulation and building of a solar oven that overcomes the problem of functioning only during the day when the sunlight is available. The project includes the building of a heat storage made of bricks and sand on the rooftop, which will store the heat during the day and will allow the use of the oven during the night. A layer of clay insulates the oven to trap the heat and prevent people from burning.

Fresnel lens on the roof channel solar radiations to maximize heat storage inside a black hole, designed to maximize the area of heat exchange. The small amount of rainwater that can enter the oven is going to evaporate quickly.
