    Abstract: A numerical mathematical model has been developed to predict the thermal behavior of thermal solar collectors using nanofluids. The model is based upon energy conservation equations for nanofluids flow and heat transfer using different nanofluids. The thermal behavior of the solar collectors during charging has been studied numerically, and analyze... Show More
