Sensitivity coefficients for experimental estimation of interstitial properties during phase change in porous media. (English) Zbl 1194.80108
Summary: The sensitivity coefficients for analyzing the interstitial properties during phase change in porous media are presented. Computation of the sensitivity coefficients and estimation of parameters are the main objective of this study. Experimentally measured temperature data provide an estimate of the phase front locations used as the state variable for this study. The derivations are based on the assumption that the phase front, \(X\), at a given time, \(t\), is a function of interstitial properties \(\tau _{t}\) and \(\tau _{q}\) with all other parameters remaining constant. The properties \(\tau _{t}\) and \(\tau _{q}\) are the lag-time in temperature and heat flux, respectively. The study of the sensitivity coefficients using these two parameters is the objective of this study. The analysis includes two types of boundary conditions of the first kind: prescribed temperature of phase change materials and prescribed temperature for solid matrix. These boundary conditions are related to the conditions under which the experimental data used in this article were collected. The results confirm the existence of the local thermal non-equilibrium condition at the onset of a phase change phenomenon.
