Flow Distribution Within Manifolded Solar Collectors with Negligible Buoyancy Effects

To understand the influence of collector design parameters on the flow distribution among the solar collector absorber tubes, and as a first step to any detailed analysis of the influence of flow on heat transfer in the collector and on its consequent thermal performance, this study investigates the...
