Modeling and experimental validation of a greenhouse with evaporative cooling by moving water film over external shade cloth
A mathematical model through flowing water film on shade cloth, stretched over the roofs and south wall of an even span greenhouse has been developed to study the effectiveness of cooling in greenhouse. The model was ...
Thermal modeling of a controlled environment greenhouse cum solar distillation for composite and warm humid climates of India
The present study is concerned with the analysis of solar desalination system combined with a greenhouse for both composite and warm humid climate of India. Analytical expressions for water temperature, greenhouse room air ...
Mathematical modeling for greenhouse heating by using thermal curtain and geothermal energy
A thermal model has been developed for the heating of a greenhouse by using inner thermal curtain and natural flow of geothermal warm water through the polyethylene tube laid on its floor. The calculations were done for a ...
Thermal modeling of a greenhouse with an integrated earth to air heat exchanger: an experimental validation
A simplified analytical model is developed to study the year round effectiveness of a recirculation type earth air heat exchanger coupled with a greenhouse located in IIT Delhi, India. The performance of the system was ...
Modeling and comparative thermal performance of ground air collector and earth air heat exchanger for heating of greenhouse
The potential of using the stored thermal energy of ground for space heating has been investigated with the help of two buried pipe systems, i.e., ground air collector and earth air heat exchanger, integrated with the ...
