Abstract: The thermal conductivities of paraffin-based composite phase change materials (PCMs) containing different types of graphene nanoparticles were determined using the transient plane source method. It was determined that the thermal conductivity was increased by the addition of the nanoparticles, and the enhancement was greater for composites containing larger, and stiffer nanoparticles.
