Abstract: In order to increase the efficiency of the system or to increase the heat transfer inside the solar air heater, here in this work, experimental analysis of solar air heater was done and measure the value of temperature at different conditions after doing the experimental work on flat plate collector solar air heater. Different types of ribs were used inside the solar air heater to create turbulence near the absorber plate that is at the top face of solar air duct. For analyzing the effect of different shapes of ribs used inside the solar air heater, here in this work it considered four different types of ribs that are rectangular, triangular, circular and hexagonal. With each shape of ribs, effect of change in Reynolds number was also analyzed. For measuring the heat transfer enhancement here it calculates the value of Nusselt number and for pressure drop it calculates the friction factor. Ansys Fluent model was used to analyze the flow behavior of air inside the solar air heater and temperature distribution throughout the duct.
Keywords: air heater, heat transfer, ribs, Nusselt number and friction factor
