Thermal conductivity from dynamic response of DSC

The researchers proposed a method used to measure the thermal conductivity and heat capacity of low thermal conductivity materials with accuracy better than 10%. DSC was also used to determine thermal contact between the sample and the DSC furnace....

A nano-graphite/paraffin phase change material with high thermal conductivity

Nano-graphite (NG)/paraffin composites were prepared as composite phase change materials. The addition of NG increased the thermal conductivity of the composite material. The material containing 10% NG had a thermal conductivity of 0.9362 W/mK...


Heat conduction enhanced shape-stabilized paraffin/HDPE composite PCMs by graphite addition: Preparation and thermal properties

Through the addition of graphite powder (GP) and expanded graphite (EG) the authors were able to increase the thermal conductivity of a shape-stabilized paraffin/high density polyethylene (HDPE) composite phase change material (PCM). GP and EG were added in different mass fractions and a Thermal Constants Analyzer was used in order to measure the thermal conductivity. The relationship between mass fractions of GP and EG added were found to have ...

Synergistic effect of iron and intumescent flame retardant on shape-stabilized phase change material

In this article, the transient plane source technique was used to determine the effect of iron, a flame retardant shape-stabilized phase change material (FSPCM), on the thermal conductivity of a sample of paraffin/high-density polyethylene (HDPE). With the results, it was determined that iron could be dispersed within the HDPE and paraffin samples, so as to improve the flame retardant efficiency. The results also concluded that the thermal conductivity of ...

Effect of expanded graphite on properties of high-density polyethylene/paraffin composite with intumescent flame retardant as a shape-stabilized phase change material

This research proposed a new, flame retardant, shape-stabilized phase change material (PCM), for use in thermal energy storage. Typical paraffin and high-density polyethylene has great shape retention, however is highly flammable and has a low thermal conductivity. Researchers introduced expanded graphite and an intumescent flame retardant to the mix to improve the thermal properties and flammability, respectively. After several tests, including a thermal conductivity evaluation, on multiple variations of the ...
