They concluded that applying these methods was highly suitable for solidification enhancement. (2002) in a small energy storage device to study heat transfer improvement in PCM with the addition of stainless steel pieces and copper pieces. The PCM used was water. They noticed that addition of steel pieces did not increase the heat flux significantly but adding copper had a significant effect on enhancing the heat transfer process.
