Abstract

A theoretical model is developed in Part I of this study to simulate the physical process of condensation of the humid air in the condenser of an existing seawater greenhouse that is located in Muscat, Oman. Application is conducted in this part to validate the theoretical developments. Comparisons are made between the predictions and the existing experimental results. The results indicate that the comparison is well consistent. The effect of the relative humidity, the dry bulb temperature and the solar radiation are also discussed to see their effects on the condensate values.
