In this paper, a new design of inclined solar still with steppe absorber plate, slope surfaces and baffles were proposed, fabricated, tested and modeled using ANSYS FLUENT software, in order to develop the simple and the cheapest type of desalination. The simulation has been carried out and validated with experimental data for climate conditions of Rabat-Morocco (34°47’N) obtained from our existing prototype. It has been found that the simulation results are in good agreement with the experimental data. It was also examined that the productivity of the cascade Solar Still was higher from 12:00 to 15:00 hrs. The results indicate that the new design ensures higher productivity.
