  1. 1. Desalination using Membrane Distillation : Experimental and Numerical Study

    Author : Alaa Kullab; Andrew Martin; Mohammed Khayet; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Air gap membrane distillation; applications; experimental and simulation; CFD; physical modification; performance improvement;

    Abstract : Desalination has been increasingly adopted over the last decades as an option, and sometimes as a necessity to overcome water shortages in many areas around the world. Today, several thermal and physical separation technologies are well established in large scale production for domestic and industrial purposes. READ MORE
