Analysis of Heat Transfer through Brick with Air Enclosure Including Phase Change Material

In this study, heat transfer through brick with air enclosure including phase change material (PCM) was simulated; this study focuses on reducing the heat transfer through the enclosure by considering the effect of several filling levels of PCM inside the air enclosure. The brick in this study is subject to transient ambient condition for the outer side, while the temperature kept constant in the inner side, to represent the actual daily change of temperature this brick may face. Five different levels of PCM (0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%) were considered in this study. The PCM help in reducing the total heat transfer into the inner part of the brick by up to 40% compare to pure concrete brick and up to 23% compare to brick with only air gap.
