Rеvuе des Energies Renouvelables


The Journal of Renewable Energies (Revue des Energies Renouvelables) is an international peer-reviewed journal published by the Renewable Energy Development Center (CDER). The journal was founded in 1998 to promote research and dissemination of knowledge on renewable energy. The Journal of Renewable Energies covers a wide range of topics that include but not limited to solar, wind, geothermal, biomass energy, hydrogen, and the environment. Particular attention is paid to energy analysis and modelling, energy conservation and storage, energy efficiency, energy demand and supply. The journal also welcomes papers on studies with an interaction between renewable energies and other scientific fields such as thermodynamics, mechanics, electricity, chemistry, biology, materials science and the protection of the environment.

Effect of cavity orientation on solidification/melting process of N-eicosane phase change material.

Iachachene Farida, 

Résumé: In this paper, melting and solidification of n-eicosane as a PCM inside two orientations of square containers is investigated numerically, using enthalpy–porosity method. The study reveals how the melting and solidification rate could be affected by changing the orientation of phase change material container with a constant temperature boundary. It was found that the orientation of the square cavity has a significant effect on the melting and solidification rate of a PCM, the improvement is more than 40% for both cycles. Therefor the orientation of the heat exchange surface is a good control parameter for both solidification and melting process.
