Thermal Conductivity Enhancement of Solid Eicosane-Based Silver Nanostructure-Enhanced Phase Change Materials for Thermal Energy Storage

With a goal of wider usage of renewable energy sources that are clean and sustainable, effective technologies, such as thermal energy storage (TES), play a vital role in storing thermal energy for future use. In this study, silver nanoparticles were dispersed in paraffin wax, eicosane, as phase change material (PCM). Thermal conductivity was measured following the transient method, using a Thermal Constants Analyzer with transient plane source technique. Thermal conductivity ...


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

This article investigated the effects of incorporating highly-conductive silver nanoparticles into eicosane-based phase change materials. The influence of silver nanoparticles on the thermal conductivity of the material was compared under three different solidification techniques. A Thermal Constants Analyzer measured the thermal conductivities of the samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. The authors found that thermal conductivity increased as temperature increased, and that there was a sharp rise in ...
