At Bob G's request, here is the current list of calculators that you may find useful that are located on our website:

http://www.borstengineeringconstruction.com/Calculators.html

Masonry Heater Performance Calculator

Passive Solar Altitude Angle Calculator
Passive Solar Roof Overhang Calculator
Passive Solar Window Exposure Calculator


Cross Flow Turbine Design Calculator
Ditch Capacity Calculator
Electric Pump Capacity Calculator
Hydro Ram Pump Capacity Calculator
Pipe Capacity Calculator
Pulley Drive System Design Calculator
Sprinkler Capacity Calculator
Undershot Water Wheel Design Calculator


I have also attached the current Calculator Instruction PDF file.  I expect to refine and add additional calculators as friends and clients request.

Cheers,
Bob B.

Been busy digging holes and filling them with concrete tanks (photo attached).  

Also got the 6/1 feeding from NG, so it is now a four fuel machine (diesel, SVO, LPG, and NG).  Have not updated the photos yet, however, NG uses same plumbing as the LPG:

And finally, and the reason for posting, I added some more calculators to my site and have attached an updated Calculator Instructions PDF file:

Hydronic Radiant Floor Heating Design Calculator
Masonry Heater Performance Calculator


Passive Solar Altitude Angle Calculator
Passive Solar Roof Overhang Calculator
Passive Solar Window Exposure Calculator


Cross Flow Turbine Design Calculator
Ditch Capacity Calculator
Electric Pump Capacity Calculator
Hydroelectric Capacity Calculator
Hydraulic Ram Pump Capacity Calculator
Pipe Capacity Calculator (Pressure Flow, Darcy-Weisbach)
Pipe Capacity Calculator (Gravity Flow, Hazen-Williams)
Pulley Drive System Design Calculator
Shaft Stress Analysis Calculator
Sprinkler Capacity Calculator
Undershot Water Wheel Design Calculator


I hope you find these calculators useful and comments/improvements/suggestions are always welcome.

Added some more calculators, most notably an Isolation Stand Design Calculator.  And as suggested by some, I also expanded the Calculator Instructions on website (and also attached) to be much more detailed to better assist users.  Finally, a special thank you to those who also made donations  Smiley

We were surprised and pleased to learn that our calcualtor website was discovered and we received an endorsement from Build It Solar…which is very likely the top renewable energy information site for Do-it-Yourselfers:

http://www.builditsolar.com/index.htm

We are now listed in several of their renewable energy information categories.  For example, if you click  “Design information and tools” in the upper right section of their home page, then find “Solar Analysis” on left side and click the category “Sun Charts & Position Collector…” and then look at the bottom of their “Solar Position, Solar Radiation, Solar Design Climatic Data” section (or just scroll about 75% down the page), you will see link and description of our DIY calculator website.

I concur, Bob.  BuilditSolar.com is an outstanding DIY solar design resource and the owner, Gary, is a retired aerospace engineer and is one of the prolific DIY solar design contributors.  He's done some great work in quantifying various DIY design performance, as well as putting together an amazing depth of content on various solar designs.

It's well worth a visit.
