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

Author(s): , , , , , , , , ,

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 ...
