- ... Fluid flow and heat transfer in a solar air heater roughened with staggered multiple V-shaped ribs on the absorber plate were investigated numerically. Three dimensional simulations were performed for different rib geometries with varying stagger distance; rib height, pitch, and attack angle; and Reynolds number. Staggered multiple V-shaped ribs provide better heat transfer than the corresponding ...
