33 hemispherical solar still the water storage basin of the hemispherical still is constructed with a diameter of 095 m and a height of 010 m using mild steel as illustrated in figures 6 and 7the water storage basin is painted black to increase the absorptivity.
A classification of the solar still systems was made in order to explain the types of solar still systems general mathematical modeling methodology of solar stills and some mathematical modeling studies are given the efficiency and performance of the solar still system are also given and discussed. Solar still, the solar radiation is received directly by the basin water and is the only source of energy to raise the water temperature and consequently, the evaporation leading to a lower productivity this is the main drawback of a passive solar still figure 3 simple solar still . Summary the present thesis is incorporated with the designing, testing and the theoretical modelling of the different type of solar stills a brief historical review and a discussion on.
Pdf | this communicating article reviews desalination by solar still, and the recent studies on the solar still systems a review of desalination by solar still hikmet s aybar eastern. In this thesis, a basin-type solar still was designed to investigate the effect of sun tracking in the performance of conventional solar still using actual environmental conditions.
1 1 a solar still desalination system with enhanced productivity 2 gm ayoub1, m al-hindi1, l malaeb2 3 1civil and environmental engineering, faculty of engineering and architecture, 4 american university of beirut, bliss street, beirut, lebanon 5 2 water desalination and reuse research center, king abdullah university of science and technology. A solar still distills water, using the heat of the sun to evaporate water so that it may be cooled and collected, thereby purifying it they are used in areas where drinking water is unavailable, so that clean water is obtained from dirty water or from plants by exposing them to sunlight. Further studies on the solar still project would include testing and/or checking the water samples conclusions as a result the tested water was not completely drinkable, but if you had to drink it then you would.
I am greatly grateful to my director of thesis profdr-ing gürbüz atagündüz for his precious instruction his dynamic thinks, his broad and profound knowledge and his construction of solar still and i̇zmir institute of technology research fund for their.
