A newly composed paraffin encapsulated prototype roof structure for efficient thermal management in hot climate

This study highlights the ongoing search for sustainable and thermally suitable phase-change materials (PCMs), for hot weather building climates, such as Iraq. This new PCM must have an extraordinary heat and cold retention ability. Building industries are interested in using paraffin’s in their roofing ...

Thermophysical Properties of Potassium Fluoride Tetrahydrate from (243 to 348) K

In this study, potassium tetrahydrate is being considered as a strong thermal energy storage material. Potassium tetrahydrate possess a low melting temperature and displays a large specific and volumetric enthalpy of fusion; all properties desirable of a thermal energy storage material. At temperatures ranging from 243 ...

Effects of melting temperature and the presence of internal fins on the performance of a phase change material (PCM)-based heat sink

Two organic phase change materials (PCMs) were investigated to determine their effects on the thermal management capabilities of electronics. The thermo-physical properties of n-eicosane and 1-hexadecanol were determined experimentally, and the two PCMs were then added to unfinned, and finned heat sinks. It was determined ...

Thermal property measurement and heat storage analysis of LiNO3/KCl – expanded graphite composite phase change material

A novel composite phase change material (PCM) composed of LiNO3/KCl with expanded graphite (EG) as a filler was prepared and investigated to determine if it had potential for use in solar energy storage applications. The addition of the expanded graphite did not significantly alter ...

The investigation of thermal conductivity and energy storage properties of graphite/paraffin composites

The low thermal conductivity of paraffin hinders its ability to be used as a PCM, and so in this article the authors created a composite made up of paraffin and micron-size graphite flakes (MSGFs) in order to hopefully increase thermal conductivity and energy storage capabilities. ...
