In order to understand the onset of convective instability and multiple stable convection patterns of buoyancy-driven convection of cold water near its density maximum in a vertical cylindrical container heated from below, a series of three-dimensional numerical simulations were performed. The aspect ratio of the container was 2 and Prandtl number of cold(More)
The dish/AMTEC solar thermal power system is a newly proposed solar energy utilization system that enables the direct thermal-electric conversion. The performance of the solar dish/AMTEC system in wind condition has been theoretically evaluated in addition to that of no-wind condition. Results show that, the variation of the overall efficiency of dish/AMTEC(More)
The natural convection heat loss characteristics of a solar cavity receiver have been investigated by numerical simulation method. The results show that, the natural convection heat loss, the convection heat transfer coefficient and Nusselt number increase with the increment of opening ratio. However, due to the consideration of physical property variation(More)
