Abstract [en]

In the present study, a finite volume method is employed to modelthe advection-diffusion phenomenon during a pure substance meltingprocess. The exercise is limited to a benchmark problem consisting ofthe 2D melting from a vertical wall of a PCM driven by natural convectionin the melt. Numerical results, mainly the temporal evolutionof average Nusselt number at the hot wall and the average liquid fraction,are validated by available literature data and the effect of thermalinertia in the heat transfer is considered as well. Finally, motivatedby recent publications and the model presented here, possible new researchtopics are proposed.
