Performance prediction of a solar timber kiln
A mathematical model of a solar timber kiln is developed by writing the energy balance equations at its different nodes. Empirical relations relating the drying time and percentage moisture content as a function of the ...
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 ...
Analytical thermal modelling of multi-basin solar still
Based on energy balances for different components of a multi-basin solar still, namely, the basin-liner, the water mass and the glass cover, analytical expressions for water and glass temperatures have been derived in terms ...
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 ...
