  • Iana Aranda says: As per Bob: reliable source of power or electrical storage and/or backup power is required. This limits the application to where this type of power is available. UV if applied appropriately can be both a safe and effective means of sterilization.

  • Depending of the desired temperature and the way you want to heat the mealworm. For low temperature, a solar heater (like the ones for water heaters for homes) could be enough; but if you want a higher temperature, a solar concentrator must be used.

  • Interesting solution, some concern about vertical reinforcement being necessary for seismic and hurricane application getting lost -- shown in some drawings not others. All in all, a lot of good technical information and by highlighting the building material in the context of the application -- post...

  • No standards in design, requires engineering design. No windows, limited protection, unclear durability. Again, not a solution, more like an example of the use of pallets for construction in limited 1st world applications.

  • I'm not sure this is appropriate as a "solution". It is certainly a concept and an innovative use of the pallet material. There have been no updates to the pallet house humanitarian design webpage since 2010.

  • In general, a good concept around integrated services and financing. Still a concept, not a lot of insight for engineers or designers except from a planning perspective.

  • Seems like an advertisement for the company and their product, not an honest description of what the actual solution is. Includes an integrated list of solutions (kitchen sink planning) but does not go into great detail about any of them individually.

  • Nice concept, good they have have a prototype. Good example of a concept around a set of principles and requirements. Limited engineering guidance or information, but could inspire an architect/engineer team to develop something with similar goals in mind.

  • Again, this seems more like an article about a concept or prototype that can serve to inspire designers but has limited value as a solution to be replicated. I guess there are some lessons learned from the failure, but that may be better suited to a different format or different section.
