Preparation and thermal characterization of composite -oeParaffin/Red Brick- as a novel form-stable of phase change material for thermal energy storage 

This study is to determine the thermal properties of a paraffin/red brick composite to determine its viability as a form-stable phase change material. Extended graphite was also added to the composite to improve its thermal conductivity. The thermal conductivity for this material was measured ...

Thermal characterization of nitrates and nitrates/expanded graphite mixture phase change materials for solar energy storage 

Nitrate materials play an important role in the development of latent thermal energy storage (LTES) systems. This paper examined the thermo-physical properties of sodium nitrate, potassium nitrate and their mixtures with expanded graphite (EG) additives for their applications in solar energy storage. The transient hot-wire ...

Preparation and thermal characterization of paraffin/metal foam composite phase change material 

Paraffin is an excellent phase change material (PCM) for latent heat storage, but it does not efficiently use stored energy because of its low thermal conductivity. In this study, nickel and copper foams were added to paraffin to enhance heat transfer. A Thermal Constants Analyzer ...

Experimental determination of temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of solid eicosane-based nanostructure-enhanced phase change materials 

Nanoparticle-enhanced phase change materials (NePCMs) are nanofluids that can be used for thermal energy storage when they undergo solid-liquid phase transitions. In this study, a Thermal Constants Analyzer (TPS) measured the thermal conductivity of eicosane-based NePCM samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results ...

Studies on Preparation and Property Researches of EP/SiC Thermal Conductivity Composites

Epoxy resin/silicon carbide (Ep/SiC) composites were prepared by the casting method and subsequently characterized for their mechanical and thermal properties. It was determined that an increasing mass fraction of SiC in the epoxy resin resulted in increasing thermal conductivity of the composites. Using 50 ...
