The present work evaluates the behavior of the temperature of the flow of air in a solar collector of channel of rocks, by means of a mathematical model that simulates the temperatures from the flow of air to the entrance and exit of the collector. The pattern relates the geometry, the incident radiation in the collector and the constants own collector determined experimentally. For the analysis they were carried out three tests in those that the temperatures of the atmosphere were measured, of entrance and exit in the collector and the solar incident radiation.
