Abstract


Plant can’t grow and reproduce without sunshine. Flowers have an inseparable relationship with sunshine as an important part of the plants. Most studies on the relationship of the plant and sunshine focus on the influence that sunshine reacts to plant, such as photosynthesis. However, there is no much more special attention on the relationship between flower structure and sunshine. Through the observation and comparison, the outlines of many flowers contour have some similarities with the solar concentrator. This paper delves into the relation between flower structure and light, in order to get the new ideas of designing solar concentrator.By means of extracting a contour line of flowers, their geometric structure models are got. Through simulation calculations of optical software, light-gathering performance of flowers is researched in the circumstance of different angle incident. Then based on researching the light-gathering process of the flowers, the innovative design ideas of bionics solar concentrators with excellent performance are presented. So in this way traditional thinking mode of single curve or surface used in solar concentrator design is expanded.Key words: flowers; bionic; solar concentrator

Keywords
