Thermal conductivity of nanofluids – Experimental and Theoretical

The use of the transient hot wire method has previously displayed that the thermal conductivity of fluids can be significantly increased by introducing nano-particles. The paper discusses the known methods for predicting the thermal conductivity and finding correlations amongst data. When preforming initial simulations employing ...

Investigation of thermal and mechanical properties of Cu-Al alloys with silver addition prepared by powder metallurgy

This article investigated the effects of silver addition to copper-aluminum (Cu-Al) alloys. These effects were studied by observing the microstructural, thermal, and mechanical properties of the alloy through a variety of methods. A Thermal Constant Analyzer was used to determine the thermal properties (specifically the ...

Evaluation of thermophysical properties of thermal conductive polymer composites

Thermal characteristics of polymer composites are similar to the properties of metal, with the mechanical properties being similar to plastics. Thermal conductivity of a polymer composite depends on geometry of the filler, and interaction and dispersal of the filler within the polymer matrix. In this ...


Optimization of sintering parameters for diamond-copper composites in conventional sintering and their thermal conductivity

In this study, sintering parameters in conventional pressure-less sintering are analyzed and the effects of uncoated, Cu(Ni)-coated, and Cr-coated diamond particles are compared for their bulk thermal conductivities. Thermal conductivity was measured at room temperature using a Thermal Constant Analyzer. The addition of ...

Thermal energy storage characteristics of Cu–H2O nanofluids

The ability of Cu-H2O nanofluids to perform as phase change materials (PCMs) is investigated. The supercooling behavior of the nanofluids was determined as a function of copper nanoparticle concentration. The contact angle and thermal conductivity of this PCM were also determined experimentally. Based on ...
