In order to study the application of phase change materials in the field of building energy saving, diatomite / fatty acid shaped phase change materials were prepared by vacuum impregnation method using modified diatomite as carrier. The structural composition and thermal properties of the shaped phase change materials were analyzed. The phase change material is directly mixed into the cement mortar by stirring. The phase change mortar, phase change mortar test block and phase change mortar… Expand
