Abstract
  Trombe walls and solar chimneys have been widely used by the construction industry for many years to heat buildings. In this study, the heat conductance of a Trombe wall was simulated and studied. The equations related to energy and momentum were solved numerically by use of the technique of control ...  Read More

Abstract
  In this paper, a novel CO2 transcritical power cycle which is driven by solar energy integrated by a cryogenic LNG recovery unit is investigated. In the proposed cycle, the condenser unit of the CO2 power cycle is replaced by a Stirling engine. Thermodynamic and exergy analyses are carried out to evaluate ...  Read More
