... energy storage density at a constant temperature corresponding to its phase transition temperature. In this paper, a high temperature PCM (melting temperature of 80 ° C ) made of a composite of paraffin and graphite was tested to determine its thermal properties. Tests were conducted with a differential...

...David MacPhee; Ibrahim Dincer The solidification and melting processes in a spherical geometry are investigated in this study. The capsules considered are filled with de-ionized water, so that a network of spheres can be thought of as being the storage medium for an encapsulated ice storage module...

... of 2, 3, 4, and 6 cm. A detailed temperature field is obtained within the spheres using 10 thermocouple wires. Values of the air velocity and temperature used in the experiments are 4–10 m/s and 60–90°C, respectively. Measured times for melting and solidification varied over a range of 5–15 and 2–5...
