    Abstract: The composite phase change materials (CPCM) are prepared by using porous silicon carbide foam as the carrier, N-octadecane (C18) as the phase change material, and metal nanoparticles decorated on carbon nanotube surfaces (M-NPs@CNTs) as fillers. It is a new type of shape and performance stable C18/M-NPs@CNTs/SF CPCM with better performance. The the... Show More

    Abstract: Background and Objective: The investigation presents the results of selected test assessment on physico-mechanical properties of three selected wood residues within the University of Ibadan Campus, Oyo State, Nigeria. Often, reclaimed planks were considered as useful material for heating and energy production, hence, potential re-usability of these... Show More
