Thermal properties of carbon nanotube reinforced metal composites

The application of carbon nanotubes (CNT) to thermal management devices has recently drawn much attention. This study produced and examined metal-carbon nanotube composites for use in highly conductive yet stable thermal management materials. The structural and thermophysical properties of metal-CNT composites were examined, including the ...


Thermal conductivity and rheology behavior of aqueous nanofluids containing alumina and carbon nanotubes

Many conventional fluids have low thermal conductivities. Adding thermally conductive nanometer-sized particles to these fluids transforms them into thermally conductive nanofluids. In this study, the thermal conductivity of aqueous alumina and multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) nanofluids was measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method ...

Enhanced thermoelectric properties of hybridized conducting aerogels based on carbon nanotubes and pyrolyzed resorcinol–formaldehyde resin

Multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbonized resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) resin were used to create a conducting aerogel with a high electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient but a low thermal conductivity. The addition of the MWCNTs caused the figure of merit (ZT) for the aerogel to ...

A Comparative Study on Thermal Conductivity and Rheology Properties of Alumina and Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Nanofluids

Numerical models for the calculation of thermal conductivity and rheology behavior of alumina and multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) nanofluids were evaluated by determining these properties experimentally and comparing the results to the models. The thermal conductivity was measured by the transient plane source method, and ...

Thermal contact resistance of epoxy composites incorporated with nano-copper particles and the multi-walled carbon nanotubes

Raw multi-walled carbon nanotubes (r-MWCNTs) and Cu nanoparticles are dispersed in an epoxy matrix in varying quantities to create composite polymers with enhanced thermal conductivities. A study was then conducted to determine if the boundary thermal contact resistance could be reduced by increasing the thermal ...
