Mentors: Katia Bulekova, Josh Bevan
Students: Austen Metsack

Project Description

To objective of this project is to develop a model that can be used to facilitate the development of a process for industrial-scale production of High Temperature Phase Change Materials (PCM). The numerical model will first be validated with simple boundary conditions with which analytical solution exists. Then it will be used to predict the cooling curve of the PCM droplets with different process attributes.
