An experimental investigation of the melting process in the vicinity of a heated vertical wall in a rectangular enclosure is presented in this work. A ̄at-plate heat pipe was used to provide a uniform temperature source. The liquid ̄ow patterns during the melting process were captured and the instantaneous marching of the liquid±solid interface was presented. In addition, the temperature distributions in the phase change material were measured at the mid-plane as well as top and bottom walls… CONTINUE READING
