Smart and Sustainable Homes Design Objectives

solar design for the local climate The design of a home for environmental sustainability needs to address but is not limited to the following: Energy The design of the home maximises the use of natural energy and minimises the need for non-renewable energy The home includes passive solar design features such as house

EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON SOLAR DRYING OF FISH

The dryer consists of a transparent plastic covered flat plate collector and a drying tunnel connected in series to supply hot air directly into the drying tunnel using four d c fans operated by two 40 watt solar modules This dryer can be used to dry upto 150 kg of fish and three sets of full scale field level drying runs for drying silver

Tunnel Dryer and Pneumatic Dryer Performance Evaluation to

The objective of this research was to contribute to the development of cassava dryers suitable for use by smallholder farmers A tunnel dryer and a pneumatic dryer being operated in Tanzania were evaluated using mass and energy balance analysis It was found that the energy efficiency of the tunnel dryer was 29% and of the pneumatic dryer 46%
