This paper presents the study of heat transfer in a rectangular duct of a solar air heater having triangular rib roughness on the absorber plate by using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The effect of Reynolds number on Nusselt number was investigated. The computations based on the finite volume method with the SIMPLE algorithm have been conducted for the air flow in terms of Reynolds numbers ranging from 3000-18000. A commercial finite volume package ANSYS FLUENT 12.1 is used to analyze and… CONTINUE READING
