520 This short book provides an update on various methods for
incorporating phase changing materials (PCMs) into
building structures. It discusses previous research into
optimizing the integration of PCMs into surrounding walls
(gypsum board and interior plaster products), trombe walls,
ceramic floor tiles, concrete elements (walls and
pavements), windows, concrete and brick masonry,
underfloor heating, ceilings, thermal insulation and
furniture an indoor appliances. Based on the phase change
state, PCMs fall into three groups: solid-solid PCMs,
solid-liquid PCMs and liquid-gas PCMs. Of these the solid-
liquid PCMs, which include organic PCMs, inorganic PCMs
and eutectics, are suitable for thermal energy storage.
The process of selecting an appropriate PCM is extremely
complex, but crucial for thermal energy storage. The
potential PCM should have a suitable melting temperature,
and the desirable heat of fusion and thermal conductivity
specified by the practical application. Thus, the methods
of measuring the thermal properties of PCMs are key. With
suitable PCMs and the correct incorporation method, latent
heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) can be economically
efficient for heating and cooling buildings. However,
several problems need to be tackled before LHTES can
reliably and practically be applied.
