Abstract: By implementing the computational techniques, the solar water performance was analysed. Employing the orthogonal design, experiments were accompanied with the input variables L/D ratio, condition of twist and time. Using the recorded measurements nusselt number and efficiency were calculated and further it was optimized in a combined objectively manner. The optimal input variables to accomplish the higher performance of solar water heater is identified. Also, the dominance of input variables was identified with the statistical analysis for the combined objective. 
Keywords: Solar Water Heater, Efficiency, Nusselt number, Optimization.
Scope of the Article:  Computational Geometry
