Because of the grown demand for the energy and also grown price of materials, it is significant to present low price and energy efficient materials. This should be said that the amount of fossil fuels throughout the world is decreasing because of grown energy demand. To relate the energy demand, it is imperative to rely on the solar energy, as it is renewable energy, freely available in the world. Recently, the temperature of the earth's atmosphere is growing which can be used and then converted to beneficial energy in the shape of heating of water. One of the techniques is using a flat plate collector. One of the innovative passive methods which is used by several researchers is Nanotechnology. Different nanomaterials can be used for solar applications and among them, Aluminum oxide has attracted the attention of researchers. Utilizing twisted tapes can generate swirls and disturb boundary layers, thus this technique is the most extensively-employed one to improve convection.
