dc.description.abstract An investigative study into the feasibility of using nitinol to harvest atmospheric thermal energy is presented. A determination of the thermal characteristic behavior of the atmosphere is made. An investigation into the use of evaporative coolants is conducted. A brief investigation into the heat treatments of 0.5mm nitinol wires is conducted. A mechanism capable of harvesting low grade thermal energy from the normal atmospheric cycling and a method of storing the energy in mechanical form to avoid losses from converting the energy from one form to another and to avoid losses during storage of said energy is built to demonstrate the feasibility of this technology. en_US
