Abstract
In this work, consideration is given to an alternative strategy for phase change materials (PCMs) heat transfer enhancement with particular reference to horizontal plates. In contrast with current approaches in which heat transfer enhancement is pursued either by adapted geometries or acting on the thermal conductivity coefficient of a given PCM, here the problem is tackled by preventing the formation and contact of the front of solidification at the wall of the vessel by the deliberate presence...
