Heat Storage Experiment of the Microencapsulated Phase Change Material Slurry in a Horizontal Rectangular Tank

Abstract:

Article Preview

Heat storage experiment by natural convection in rectangular tanks heated from below has been conducted with fluidity slurry composed of microencapsulated phase change material (PCM). The slurry shows a peak value in the specific heat capacity with latent heat at the temperature of about T = 31 °C. The effects of the heating wall temperature TH, the PCM mass concentration Cm of the PCM slurry and the height H of the tank on heat storage are revealed, respectively.
