Abstract: The objective of this work is to assess the combined effects of fixed pressure drop and specific air mass flow rate on duct dimensions (length and depth) of single-pass-with-bare-plate, single-cover and double-cover solar air heaters, and to obtain the resultant system efficiency that corresponds to a pre-fixed pumping cost and a minimum material cost per unit area of the system. The design selection methodology adopted in this paper will make it feasible for an air-heater designer to construct efficient and economical solar air heaters.
