Résumé
Southern Iran is sparsely populatedi much of the population is concentrated into small widely scattered communities, each of less than 1000 inhabitants. These isolated communities face an acute shortage of fresh water. The existing sources o f fresh water supply, such as rainwater, ground and surface water, are inadequate and often unsuitable. However, brackish or saline water is available which can be desalted. In view of the low daily fresh water demand in these communities, solar distillation appears to be a suitable desalination process. In this thesis the possibility of using solar desalination for the isolated communities of Southern Iran has been considered from bath technical and economic standpoints. Two alternates have been studied : one of building large-scale community solar stills and the other relating to the provision of small-scale family-size units. As a part of the investigation five small-scale experimental solar stills were built and tested in Montreal and the results extrapolated to Southern Iran.
