Thesis Topic/Title
Solar Desalination System

Description

Solar distillation technique has been used for thousands of years. The technique was utilized by Greek mariners and Persian alchemists to produce freshwater or pharmaceutical extracts. Dominant procedures of desalination are energy intensive and rely on fossil fuels. Nowadays, solar desalination techniques contribute to less than 1% of desalination process. This project aims to improve the efficiency of existing solar desalination techniques using both empirical and computational (CFD) approaches.
