  author={C. L. Butts and David H. Vaughan},
ABSTRACT Amodel was developed to predict the outlet air temperature, useful heat gain and efficiency of a covered plate attic solar collector using fundamental relationships of heat transfer. The model was validated by comparing the predicted outlet air temperature to that measured during drying operations of two attic solar collectors.
