    • Effect of using external vertical fins in phase change material modules for domestic hot water tanks 

      Castell, Albert; Solé Cutrona, Cristian; Medrano Martorell, Marc; Roca Enrich, Joan; García, Daniel; Cabeza, Luisa F. (European Association for the Development of Renewable Energies, Environment and Power Quality, 2006)
      The effect of using external vertical fins in Phase Change Materials (PCM) modules to improve the natural convection coefficient in water is studied in this paper. The use of PCM in a water tank working with a solar system ...
    • Natural convection from narrow horizontal plates at moderate Rayleigh numbers 

      Martorell, Ingrid; Herrero, Joan; Grau, Francesc X. (Elsevier, 2003)
      The present work deals with the natural convection flow and heat transfer from a horizontal plate cooled from above.Experiments are carried out for rectangular plates having aspect ratios between / ¼ 0:036 and 0.43 and ...
