About this book

This book highlights the design of a new type of solar chimney that has lower height and bigger diameter, and discusses its applications. The bigger diameter chimneys are introduced showing cold inflow phenomena that significantly reduced the performance of solar chimney. The cold inflow-free operation of solar chimneys restores the draft losses and enhances the performance of the solar chimneys. Numerical and experimental investigation results will be presented to highlight the performance of cold inflow-free solar chimney performance. In addition, this book covers the important basic design parameters that affect the design of solar chimney for different applications, mainly, solar chimney-assisted ventilation for passive cooling and power generation system.

About the authors

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Md Mizanur Rahman is a Chartered Energy Engineer is currently working as an Associate Professor in the Mechatronics Engineering Department at World University of Bangladesh, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Dr. Rahman has more than fifteen years Teaching and Research experiences and his research interest lies in both fundamental and applied aspects of Energy Technologies, especially in new technologies to harvest electrical energy from solar, biomass and hydro sources. Dr. Rahman has published more than 55 research papers in the various journals and national & international conference proceedings. In addition Dr. Rahman has published four book chapters under Springer Nature and WIT publisher and also holds a Patent on natural draft cooling tower.

 Prof. Dr. Christopher Chi-Ming Chu is a Professor of Chemical Engineering Programme, Faculty of Engineering, and Fellow of Material and Minerals Research Unit, Universiti Malaysia Sabah. He obtained a B.Sc. (Hons.) and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from University of Birmingham, and an LL.B. in Bachelor of Laws from University of London. For 16 years he worked on Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow Services (HTFS) projects in plumes, air-cooled heat exchangers, shell and tube evaporator and condenser, and falling film evaporation of mixtures. His Effective Plume-Chimney Height method is referred by a textbook for the design of air-cooled heat exchangers operating under natural convection. His research interests are cold inflow, plume-chimney and passive cooling.
