Effect of greenhouse on crop drying under natural and forced convection I: Evaluation of convective mass transfer coefficient
In this paper, a study of convective mass transfer coefficient and rate of moisture removal from cabbage and peas for open sun drying and inside greenhouse drying has been performed as a function of climatic parameters. ...
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 ...
Performance evaluation of a solar still by using the concept of solar fractionation
In this communication an attempt has been made to find out distribution of solar radiation, using the concept of solar fraction inside a conventional (single slope) solar still by using AUTOCAD 2000 for a given solar azimuth ...
Monthly performance of passive and active solar stills for different Indian climatic conditions
The monthly performance of passive and active solar stills for different Indian climatic conditions was evaluated. Numerical computations were carried out for hourly variations of average insolation at the Chennai, Jodhpur, ...
