A source item-based computation model is developed for analysing phase-change heat transfer within Microencapsulated PCM suspending in a flowing carrier fluid to enhance convective heat transfer, with the consideration of phase-change temperature range and varying thermal properties. Solution is obtained by developing a control volume-based finite difference code, in which TDMA method combined with under-relaxation is used to solve a strong nonlinear equation. The code developed for this study can be used for evaluating Microencapsulated PCM suspension and instructing the preparation of Microencapsulated PCM.
