The melting behavior of Paraffin RT-50 in a finned cylindrical surface
The energy provision is one of the main concerns of modern technological processes and thermal management systems. Through latent heat energy, the storage of thermal energy using phase-change materials is examined in this paper. Paraffin Rubitherm 50 is filled in the cylinder. The base of the cylinder is heated and the vertical surface is made adiabatic. The melting procedure for two cases namely the plane surface and finned surface of the cylinder are considered. The melt fractions are observed and photographed for fixed intervals of time from solid state to total melt state. Initially, the melting of specified PCM was slow and then it became faster when convection heat transfer is accompanied with the conduction. The melting of PCM is geared with fin presence.
