Effect of Phase-Change Materials on Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Asphalt Mixtures

The goal of this paper was to incorporate Phase-Change Materials (PCMs) into asphalt in order to reduce the amount of heat that the pavement absorbs. Asphalt pavement is vastly preferred to cement for roads, however the downside is that it can reach extremely high temperatures ...

High-electrical-resistivity thermally-conductive phase change materials prepared by adding nanographitic fillers into paraffin

Pristine and modified exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets (xGnPs and M-xGnPs, respectively) were dispersed into a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) in an effort to raise the thermal conductivity of the PCM. The addition of pure xGnPs would decrease the electrical resistivity of the composite PCM, ...

Nano-PCMs for passive electronic cooling applications

The authors have carried out an experimental and numerical study on the effects of seeding Al2O3 nanoparticles in a paraffin wax phase change material (PCM) on the thermal conductivity and the latent heat of fusion. It was determined that the addition of the nanoparticles (...

Thermal energy storage performance of paraffin-based composite phase change materials filled with hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets

A paraffin-based composite phase change material (PCM) was prepared by the addition of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets to melted paraffin wax followed by vigorous stirring. The nanosheets were added in quantities ranging from 1 to 10 wt. %. A reference sample of pure paraffin was also prepared. ...

A novel phase change material containing mesoporous silica nanoparticles for thermal storage: A study on thermal conductivity and viscosity

A composite PCM was prepared from n-octadecane and mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were added in quantities ranging from 1 wt. % to 5 wt. %, and the thermal conductivity of each composite sample was determined as a function of temperature. The most significant enhancement in thermal conductivity ...
