Volume 13, Issue 4 , July 2022, , Pages 349-353

  This numerical and experimental work aims to improve the heat transfer inside a solar thermal collector. By incorporating rectangular baffles in the middle of the distributed air passing channel at different angles of inclination (ß= 90°, ß= 180°, ß= 180° and ß= 90°). ...  Read More

Effect of Radiative Filling Gas in Compound Parabolic Solar Energy Collectors

S. A. Gandjalikhan Nassab; M. Moein Addini

Volume 12, Issue 3 , September 2021, , Pages 181-191

  In the present paper, the use of radiating gas instead of air inside the cavity of compound parabolic collectors (CPSs) is suggested and verified by numerical analysis. The collector under study has a simple cone shape with flat absorber which is filled with a participating gas such as carbon dioxide ...  Read More

Single Basin Solar Still with Varying Depth of Water: Optimization by Computational Method

A. Kumar Thakur; S. Kumar Pathak

Volume 8, Issue 3 , July 2017, , Pages 216-223

  Solar still is a device, used to convert brackish water into distill water but the major issue low profitability and it is imperative to outline an ideal device. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation can help designers to improve the execution of a sun oriented still for a given cost. In this ...  Read More
