Interaction Between Temperatures, Airflow and Chimney Design in Indirect Free Convective Solar Dryers

This paper presents the results of experiments using two indirect free convective solar dryers under no-load and loaded conditions using rice, under typical conditions existing in Sierra Leone. One of the dryers has a single passage in the air heater and the other a double passage air heater. Five different chimney configurations were used.
