Abstract

The paper presents preliminary results of an experimental study on solar water heater with full width and 75% twisted tapes as heat transfer enhancement device. The study shows that the thermal efficiency due the use of the twisted tape increases by about 5-8. 5%; higher for the 75% twisted tape
