Development of Methods to Fully Saturate Carbon Foam with Paraffin Wax Phase Change Material for Energy Storage

In this work, the effect of infiltration method on the saturation rate of paraffin phase change material within graphite foams is experimentally investigated. Graphite foams infiltrated with paraffin have been found to be effective for solar energy storage, but it has been found that it is difficult...
