    • Assessment of evaporative cooling efficiency in greenhouses equiped with wetted porous plates 

      Alves-Damasceno, Flavio; Barreto-Mendes, Luciano; Yanagi Junior, Tadayuki; Luiz de Oliveira, Jofran; Osorio-Saraz, Jairo Alexander
      The main objective of this study was to experimentally validate a mechanistic model for predicting the cooling efficiency (η) of wetted porous plates built with expanded clay. The expanded clay material was physically ...
