Abstract
This study reports on numerical simulations of a parabolic trough solar collector to predict the aerodynamic behaviour and the convection heat transfer from the heat collector element. In the study, the variation of fluid flow with different angles of attack has been taken into account. Calculations are performed using Large Eddy Simulations with a Variational Multiscale (VMS)approach for modelling the sub-grid scale stress tensor. The governing equations are discretised on a collocated unstruct...
