Abstract

•Close-contact melting heat transfer on a horizontal plate was revisited for NePCM.•The measured melt fraction agrees well with a model for NePCM at various loadings.•The 1 wt% NePCM has a higher melting rate than those of the blank and 3 wt% ones.•Thickened melt film at higher viscosity is attributed to the slow-down of melting.•The higher melting rate does not necessarily lead to a faster energy storage rate.
