Design parameters of a non-air-conditioned cinema hall for thermal comfort under arid-zone climatic conditions
In this communication, a design of a cinema hall suitable for climatic conditions in an arid zone has been presented. The various cooling techniques, namely evaporative cooling, wind tower, ventilation/infiltration and ...
Thermal efficiency of collection-cum-storage solar water heater
In this Technical Note, an analytical expression for the thermal efficiency of a collection-cum-storage water heater, in terms of design and climatical parameters, has been derived. The effects of the design and climatical ...
Design parameters of a shallow bed solar crop dryer with reflector
In this communication, energy balance equations for a passive solar crop dryer with shallow bed, including the effect of a reflector placed over the wall of the chimney, have been written in terms of design and climatic ...
Experimental simulation of a grain drying system
In this Technical Note, an experimental simulation of a grain drying system has been tested. The experimental observations have been used to evaluate the drying time for wheat crop for a given moisture content. The effect ...
