Deficiency of potable water has created many problems for human and human society, Therefore, The production of fresh water from saline water is an important issue. One of the method of production fresh water from saline water is the use of solar stills. This paper is the numerical simulation of the conventional solar stills with setting Rectangular, Triangular, Wavy barriers on the left and right walls inside the solar still. Setting barriers causes a change in the pattern of humid airflow in the solar still that it affect water productivity and convective heat transfer rate. Also, changes in the size and number of barriers cause changes it will be in the result. The continuity, momentum, energy and concentration equations are discretized by finite volume method and the results are presented as flow function and concentration and temperature contours. The simulation results show that setting wavy barriers with A=0.01(m) and N=2 at left wall and A=0.075(m) and N=5 at right wall water productivity and convective heat transfer rate can be increased by about 31% and 31.34%.
