Hi Benjamin Mutton, it's been so many decades since I read dune, please remind me what the wind traps are for. A description of what I assume is your panel would also be enlightening. Also as I'm on my phone I can't tell where you're from and what your climate is so some info there would be appreciated.
Do you live in the desert? What is the air trap for?
Some plastic greenhouses have a “airwall”. Air is blown into the the cavity between two sheets of plastic. And it gives it extra rigidity and strength also.
Denise Ra the windtraps were for harvesting water in the desert they fill huge cisterns similar to the Nabataeans which the fremen were supposedly based on.I live in northern Arizona.Im not sure that this will work in my climate.I am a big fan of dune so thought that this was awesome and wanted to share this idea.hope this answers your questions thank you for taking interest.
