A two-dimensional numerical investigation on a prototypal solar chimney system integrated with an absorbing capacity wall in a south facade of a building is numerically studied.

Abstract

A two-dimensional numerical investigation on a prototypal solar chimney system integrated with an absorbing capacity wall in a south facade of a building is numerically studied. The capacity wall is composed of a high absorbing plate and an assigned thickness of phase change material. The chimney consists of a converging channel with one vertical absorbing wall and the glass plate inclined of 2°. The transient analysis on a two-dimensional model in airflow is carried out and the governing equations for natural convection in turbulent flow with Boussinesq assumption and thermophysical properties temperature independent are given in terms of k-ε turbulence model. The numerical analysis was intended to evaluate the thermal and fluid dynamic behavior of the solar chimney integrated with a latent thermal energy storage system for different values of the PCM thickness.
