Performance Analysis of Solar Thermal Devices: SolarisKit Flat Pack Solar Panel

SolarisKit is a high-growth SME who have developed a flat-pack solar thermal collectors for low-cost heating systems. This project will see the development of Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) models of the fluid flow and heat transfer within the innovative design; the models may also be integrated with a Ray-trace model to characterise the product and to suggest design modifications to improve the overall operating performance.
