Top 10 High Thermal Conductivity Research Papers

Top 10 High Thermal Conductivity Research Papers Thermal conductivity enhancement of Ag nanowires on an organic phase change material Increasing the thermal conductivity of an organic phase change material, all the while maintaining a high phase change enthalpy, is a difficult task. In this study, researchers took 1-tetradecanol/Ag nanowires composites, containing various wt% of Ag nanowires, and tested their thermal conductivities and phase change enthalpies. The results suggest the PCM composite containing 62.73 wt% of Ag nanowires is the most promising candidate for thermal conductivity enhancement of organic phase change materials, as it showed a remarkably high thermal conductivity...

What is Thermal Conductivity?

What is Thermal Conductivity? Thermal conductivity (often denoted by k, λ, or κ) refers to the intrinsic ability of a material to transfer or conduct heat. It is one of the three methods of heat transfer, the other two being convection and radiation. Heat transfer processes can be quantified in terms of appropriate rate equations. The rate equation in this heat transfer mode is based on Fourier’s law of heat conduction. Thermal conductivity occurs through molecular agitation and contact, and does not result in the bulk movement of the solid itself. Heat moves along a temperature gradient, from an...
