  This paper investigates the melting behavior of phase-change material (PCM) in an evacuated tube solar collector. The outer tube was made of borosilicate glass with a diameter of 60 mm, and the inner tube was made of copper with a diameter of 10 mm and length of 1500 mm. The heat transfer problem in ...  Read More
