Transport properties and heat transfer coefficients of ZnO/(ethylene glycol + water) nanofluids

Nanofluids are used to improve the thermal conductivity of heat transfer fluids. This study examined the effects on thermal conductivity of zinc oxide (ZnO)/ethylene glycol + water nanofluids as increasing concentrations of ZnO nanopartilces were added to the solution. A Thermal Constants Analyzer (TPS) measured ...

Ethyl and isopropyl alcohol blends as alternative secondary fluids

Methyl and ethyl alcohol have good thermophysical characteristics for use in refrigeration systems. The purpose of this study was to measure the thermal conductivity of ethyl and methyl alcohol solutions to determine if they can become competitive secondary fluids. A Thermal Constants Analyzer measured the ...

Experimental measurement of thermophysical properties of H2O/KCOOH (potassium formate) desiccant

H2O/KCOOH (potassium formate) is a highly soluble hygroscopic salt solution that has the potential to be used as a desiccant. However, the thermophysical properties of H2O/KCOOH are only available for concentrations between 20-50%, which is not beneficial for their use as ...

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 properties and rheological behavior of water based Al2O3 nanofluid as a heat transfer fluid

Polyactic acid (PLA)-micro hexagonal boron nitride (hBN)-graphene nanoplatelet (GNP) polymer composites were prepared, and the effects of varying filler contents on the thermal and mechanical properties of the polymer composites were investigated. It was determined that the addition of the GNPs resulted in ...
