Patent application: Thermal barrier with selectable phase change material

Ben Welter - Friday, August 21, 2015
Caution: The abstract for U.S. patent application 20150233115 (assignee Kuwait University) might make your head explode: 

"A thermal barrier panel with selectable phase change materials includes a thermal panel and a plurality of containers movably positioned within the thermal panel to correspond to a heat load at a corresponding ambient temperature. Each of the plurality of containers includes a plurality of receptacles that include a plurality of different phase change materials. Each of the plurality of different phase change materials absorbs thermal energy produced by heat from the heat load at a corresponding ambient temperature."
