Ravindra Kumar Yadav | Prof. Animesh Singhai "Melting Process of the Phase Change Material inside a Half-Cylindrical with Thermal Non-Equilibrium Copper Foam as a Porous Media: CFD Simulation" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-6 | Issue-4, June 2022, pp.124-132, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd49922.pdf

Many thermal engineers employed latent thermal energy storage; however, the poor thermal conductivity of Phase-Change Material (PCM) severely hampered the storage efficiency. Because of its capacity to improve total heat conduction, filling metal foam has been a successful method of improving heat transmission. This research looked at the effect laws of porosity and pore density of copper foam to improve the thermal performance of the paraffin-metal foam composite PCM. The four parameters of the liquid fraction, temperature response rate, heat flow, and heat storage capacity were analyzed in a two-dimensional numerical model using the two-temperature non equilibrium equation, which was created and confirmed by published data. The goal of this research is to evaluate quantitatively the impact of local thermal non-equilibrium porous media on the melting of paraffin at 33°C. The geometry of a paraffin-filled half cylinder with an insulating wall and a constant temperature. This simulation also takes into account the Darcy model and buoyant force owing to density variations. On the melting fraction of PCM, temperature and streamlines contours, and heat flux of the cylinder's surface, the impacts of the presence of copper foam with porosity = 0.8, and difference temperature T = 10, and 15 were investigated.
