This is because increasing barrel temperature serves to increase only interfacial temperature, and this is limited depending of the latent heat of fusion of the resin.
The latent heat of fusion of ice is 335 kJ/kg and the specific heat capacity of water is 4.814 kJ/(kg K).
PCM solidifies on drop of ambient temperature giving off its latent heat of fusion. As compared to conventional materials PCMs have the property of storing high amount of latent heat giving more heat storage capacity per unit volume.
where L is the latent heat of fusion, [T.sub.o] is the onset temperature of phase transition happens, and [T.sub.e] is the temperature when the phase transition completely finishes.
The characteristics of the freeze front and the latent heat of fusion that is released during solidification must be resolved.
Most of the heat required to melt a small volume of solder goes not toward raising the solder temperature to its melting point but rather to apply its latent heat of fusion to get that solder fully molten again.
