Abstract

Current research contains numerical modeling of the melting process acceleration with nanoparticles. The upper layer filled with paraffin contains CuO nanoparticles. Air hot flow inside the lower layer makes the NEPCM to change its phase from solid to liquid. Such model can be employed in a building to control the temperature of air in the room. The mathematical model has been provided considering single phase model and has been solved via finite volume method. Outputs demonstrate that melt fraction enhances with increasing in concentration of CuO nanoparticles. By dispersing nanoparticles, the air outlet temperature augments and heat conduction become stronger in upper layer
