Thermal and electrical conduction in unsaturated sand controlled by surface wettability

This study investigates the effect of water repellency on the thermal and electrical conductance of soils. A transient line source heating method and two-terminal electrode system was used to investigate the thermal and electrical conductivity of unsaturated hydrophilic and hydrophobic soils with known degrees of ...

Anisotropy measurements of a cuboid of nanostructured hydrothermally prepared Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3

Thermoelectric materials can be used to convert waste heat, such as solar energy and automobile exhaust, to electricity. A Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3 p-type cuboid was created using hydrothermal synthesis, cold pressing, and evacuated-and-encapsulated sintering in a Pyrex ampoule. The ...

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 ...

Effect of nanosized carbon black on the morphology, transport, and mechanical properties of rubbery epoxy and silicone composites

Rubber carbon black (CB)/rubbery epoxy (RE) and CB/silicone composites with different types, loadings, and silane functionalization of carbon black were prepared. These composites were investigated for their electrical conductivities, and their mechanical properties. The thermal conductivity of each composite was also determined using ...

Preparation of low-density polyethylene/low-temperature expandable graphite composites with high thermal conductivity by an in situ expansion melt blending process

Low-temperature expandable graphite (LTEG) was blended into low-density polyethylene (LDPE) to prepare composite materials with an enhanced thermal conductivity in comparison to pure LDPE. The thermal conductivity of a composite containing 60 wt. % LTEG was found to be increased by a factor of 23 in comparison to ...
