Awarding a Master's Degree with Distinction
The student Shurooq Juma Ali has been awarded a master's degree with distinction for a dissertation entitled 'Experimental and Numerical Performance Evaluation of Solar Air Collector with Porous Media'
This work investigated the effect of porous media technique on the solar air collector system numerically and then verified the achieved results experimentally. The aim of this study has investigated the effect of porous media technique on the solar air collector system numerically then verified the achieved results experimentally. Numerically, the Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) techniques were used to investigate the solar air heater applied to porous media. Experimentally, the tests were carried out indoor by using solar simulators consisted of eight halogen tungsten lamps. The intensity of radiations was controlled throughout two ways potentiometer and mobile. The latter was implemented via Bluetooth by designing, building and implementing the light control system.
The exam committee consisted of Asst. Prof. Dr. Abdul Latif Ahmed Gad Allah as a chairman and membership of each of Asst. Prof. Dr. Mohammed Abdul Karim Al-Rawaf from Mansour University College, Dr. Muhammad Qasim Muhammad From the University of Technology and in the presence of student's supervisors both of Prof. Dr. Jalal Mohammed Jalil and Asst. Prof. Dr. Sherine Faiq Abdel Karim.
