Thermal Performance of Double Slope Floating Cum Tilted-Wick Solar Still with the Effect of Water Flowing Over the Glass Cover
This article explains the transient performance of double slope floating cum tilted-wick solar still. The impact of the liquid, water in this case flowing over a glass cover has also been studied. In addition to it the heat capacity of both type of wick water surfaces viz., double slope and floating type has been investigated. Mathematical expressions have been arrived at for the components such as floating and tilted wick surfaces, efficiency, glass cover and flowing water. The numerical calculations have been done during the month of July 2010. The venue where the experimental investigations have been carried out was Sri Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya College of Arts and Science, Coimbatore, India.
