...) solutions involving nonuniform heat flux distribution (NUHFD) on the absorber tube of a parabolic trough solar collector (PTC). This study aims to obtain an analytical solution for the transient heat conduction in 2D of the absorber tube. The analytical solution was obtained using the method of separation...
