This paper is focused on sensible heat thermal energy storage in solid media and its numerical analysis of transient behaviour during charging/discharging phase. The thermal performance of different storage materials has been investigated using the finite element method through modelling a differential element. Its parameters such as: volume, total weight and thermal capacity have been used in the analysis. In this work the thermal behaviour of a cement-graphite composite, a fibre reinforced concrete, an high temperature concrete and a castable ceramic, selected in the literature, has been modelled and simulated in order to provide useful information for development of novel energy storage materials and sensible heat thermal energy storage system design.
