Solar timber kilns: State of the art and foreseeable developments
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Analysis of the evolution in solar heated drying kilns in recent decades shows that there have been a series of modifications to optimize their thermal and drying efficiency. Using an analysis method based on product design, we report on existing solar timber kilns. The dryers and their component units are studied, developments are noted, focusing on changing trends in technological systems. As a result of this analysis we suggest some future adaptations.

LUNA, David; JANNOT, Yves; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre (Elsevier, 2010)In systems design, suitably adapted physical models are required. Different modelling approaches for a solar air collector were studied in this paper. First, a classical model was produced, based on a linearization of the ...
LUNA, David; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre; JANNOT, Yves (Elsevier, 2010)A solar kiln with energy storage can be used for continuous drying. This kiln consisted of several units which were modeled to simulate it in operation. A model was proposed for each unit, and another based on laboratory ...
Variational tolerancing analysis taking thermomechanical strains into account: application to a high pressure turbine PIERRE, Laurent; TEISSANDIER, Denis; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre (Elsevier, 2014)The aim of this study is to propose a variational method of tolerancing analysis using a multiphysical approach. This method is based on operations on polytopes (Minkowski sum and intersection) and can be used to validate ...
VALVERDE, Ulises; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre; SCARAVETTI, Dominique; LEON, Jean-François (ELSEVIER, 2014)One can find innovative solutions to complex industrial problems by looking for knowledge in patents. Traditional search using keywords in databases of patents has been widely used. Currently, different computational methods ...
VELÁZQUEZ ROMO, Ernesto Efrén; NADEAU, Jean-Pierre; BRUNEAU, Denis; LAGIERE, Philippe (2013)The building sector currently represents 40% of the energy consumption and one of the major emitters of greenhouse gases in the world. This, combined with the characteristic long lifespan of buildings, means that the ...
