The viscosity and thermal conductivity of ethane in the limit of zero density

New independent representations of the viscosity and thermal conductivity of ethane in the limit of zero density. For viscosity, the correlation is over the temperature range of 200 to 1000 K, with the highest uncertainty being 2.5% . The correlation for thermal conductivity covers from 225 to 725 K with a ...

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 ...

Thermal properties of asphalt concrete: A numerical and experimental study

Asphalt concrete must often endure a range of different weather conditions, and its thermal conductivity is affected by these changes. Using the Finite Element Method (FEM), this paper develops a two-dimensional numerical model used to study and predict environmental effects and validates it through experimental ...
