The Experimental Exploration of Embedding Phase Change Materials with Graphite Nanofibers for the Thermal Management of Electronics

To improve the thermal performance of phase change materials (PCMs), graphite nanofibers were embedded into a paraffin PCM. The thermal effects of graphite fiber loading levels (0–5 wt %) and graphite fiber type (herringbone, ribbon, or platelet) during the melting process were examined for a 131...
