  • Published 2014


Convective heat transfer coefficients (CHTC) for flat unglazed transpired solar collectors have been computed using high-resolution 3-dimensional steady RANS CFD simulations. The Standard k-ε, Renormalization Normal Group kε (RNG k-ε), Realizable k-ε and Shear Stress Transport k-ω (SST k-ω) turbulence closure models were used and the results were compared… (More)
