Horizontal Inlets of Water Storage Tanks With Low Disturbance of Stratification

This work presents computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of direct horizontal inlets at midheight of a typical solar combi-storage of about 800 L volume. Different inlet diffusor designs were simulated, and laboratory measurements were used to validate CFD experiments. Recommendations for the design and maximum fluid velocity of horizontal inlets are presented.
