Nowadays, the interest of researcher growing in the field of optimization of solar systems in order to improve the thermal performance by reducing friction losses and increasing heat transfer rates either using optimization techniques or improving system design by introducing roughness elements. In case of solar air heater, the working fluid is air which… CONTINUE READING
