Abstract

Nanomaterials have many applications. Improving the heat transfer characteristics of the substance is one of the most important applications of nanomaterials. A solar still is a device that desalinates saline or impure water using solar energy. In the present work, a conceptual design approach is used to design a solar still utilizing nanomaterials. The customer requirements are collected based on an online survey. Based on these requirements, the product specifications are specified. The customers' voice is heard through quality function deployment, and several alternatives are proposed in the morphological chart. By comparing the alternatives, the best one is chosen using the decision matrix.
