Experimental and multi-scale analysis of the thermal properties of Portland cement concretes embedded with microencapsulated Phase Change Materials (PCMs)

Phase change materials (PCMs) are an attractive solution for reducing energy usage because of their efficient latent heat storage abilities. This paper examined chemical and physical properties of micro-PCMs before and after their integration with concrete samples. A Thermal Constants Analyser (TPS) measured the thermal conductivity of the PCM-concrete using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that overall, the thermal conductivity of the concrete was unchanged after the ...

Effective permeability and thermal conductivity of open-cell metallic foams via homogenization on a microstructure model

This research article delves into the thermal conductivity monitoring of open-cell foams. The foams are created through an intense procedure, in which slip reaction foam sintering is employed. Prior to measuring the thermal conductivities of the foams, a multiscale approach, taking into consideration the homogenization method, was used to predict thermal conductivity values. To obtain experimental results, the Transient Plane Source method was then used to determine the thermal conductivity ...
