I have contacted the researchers in question in the past and they shared
their model with me gladly. I don't see any reasons they wouldn't do the
same thing for you. The people I contacted were:
*Jacques Bony from the Haute Ecole d'Ingénierie et de Gestion du Canton
de Vaud, in France. His model is referenced as TRNSYS Type 860 which is
said to be able to simulate cylindrical, spherical and rectangular PCM
capsules inside a water storage tank (whether vertical or horizontal).
This model was compared to experimental results using a vertical tank
and cylindrical capsules.
*Hermann Schranzhofer from Graz University of Technology in Germany who
modeled TRNSYS Type 840. This model is for PCM slurry tanks or tanks
filled with cylindrical, spherical and rectangular PCM capsules. He
performed experimental validation of the model for use as a slurry tank
as well as for a vertical tank with spherical and cylindrical capsules.
In both cases, no tests where made for horizontal tanks or rectangular
PCM capsules. I am currently working on a test bench to evaluate the
performance of a horizontal storage tank filled with rectangular PCM
capsules. I hope to compare my experimental results to numerical results
from these two models as well as from my own PCM tank model.
