Abstract: Phase-change materials (PCMs) can absorb large amounts of heat without significant rise of their temperature during the melting process. This effect may be utilized in thermal energy storage and passive thermal management. In order to enhance the rate of heat transfer into PCMs, various techniques have been suggested, like fins, metal and graphite-compound matrices, dispersed high-conductivity particles inside the PCM, and micro-encapsulation. The present work deals with a hybrid PCM-air heat si… Show more
