|Abstract:||The melting of paraffin wax dispersed with Al 2O 3 that is heated from one side of a square enclosure with dimensions of 25mm×25mm is investigated numerically. The stream function, isotherms and liquid-solid interface at different stages of the melting process are presented and discussed. The effect of orientation of the heating surfaces of a square cavity and the volumetric concentration of Al 2O 3 in paraffin wax on the melting performance of the latent heat storage system is analysed. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.|
