Approaches for expedition of discharging of PCM involving nanoparticles and radial fins.
Research Field: Chemistry/Nanoparticle
To fins the solution, Galerkin approach was applied and different mesh configuration in various time step helps to capture the phenomena more accurate. Validation with experimental data shows the nice accommodation. So, influence of fins length and diameter of particles were imposed. As longer fins were employed, the solidification time reduces about 3.74% when dp = 40. As dp rises from 40 to 50, temperature augments and greater energy has been achieved because of augmentation of needed time from 175.44 to 264.05 s. Impact of dp on isotherms is more significant than fins length.
