Estimation of an efficiency factor for a greenhouse:a numerical and experimental study
An analytical expression for instantaneous thermal efficiency (n)of a greenhouse in terms of design and climate parameters has been derived by considering the energy balance equations for different component of the ...
Off-season cultivation of cucumbers in a solar greenhouse
The use of solar energy for growing cucumbers in pots and the ground has been studied under controlled environments in a solar greenhouse. Forced and evaporative cooling were employed. An average of 7 cucumbers per pot ...
Temperature distribution in different zones of the micro-climate of a greenhouse: a dynamic model
This communication presents a dynamic model for determination of plant and the enclosed room air temperature in different zones of the micro-climate of a greenhouse. The numerical analysis and the experimental validation ...
