Abstract

The conventional design of absorber tube in parabolic collectors has smooth surface. The smooth surface has lower heat transfer rate which can be improved by the use of artificial roughness. The current research investigates the application of C shape and V shape artificial roughness in absorber tube using techniques of Computational Fluid Dynamics. The CAD model is developed in creo design software and CFD analysis is conducted using ANSYS software. RNG K epsilon turbulence model is used for analysis which gives reasonably good prediction for swirl flow conditions. The CFD results have shown significant increase in heat transfer rate with the use of artificial roughness
