Reference Correlations of the Thermal Conductivity of o-Xylene, m-Xylene, p-Xylene, and Ethylbenzene from the Triple Point to 700 K and Moderate Pressures

O-xylene, m-xylene, p-xylene, and ethylbenzene are all given new representative reference equations for their thermal conductivities based upon experimental data that has been critically assessed for consistency and agreement with theory. This data was collected in part due to the transient hot wire method. The theoretically expected enhancements in the critical regions of all four agree with the data collected and can be well represented by theoretically based equations containing ...

Reference Data for the Thermal Conductivity of Saturated Liquid Toluene Over a Wide Range of Temperatures

Liquid toluene is a material used in industrial processes, and generally the thermal conductivity needs to be determined for efficient use. However, the thermal conductivity varies depending on high temperatures and other physical variables. The transient hot wire method has previously been used to obtain measurements of the thermal conductivity of toluene under multiple conditions to create reference data. This paper displays ...

Thermal conductivity measurement by TPS analyzer 

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the ability of a transient plane source (TPS) method to measure thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and volumetric heat capacity. Four samples were tested standard steel, linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), LLDPE with 5 wt% graphite composite, and LLDPE with 15 wt% graphite composite. Steel had the highest thermal conductivity because steel has more free electrons then the other materials. LLDPE had a lower thermal conductivity ...


A comparison of nanofluid thermal conductivity measurements by flash

Some researchers argue that the anomalous k enhancement data, for nanofluids, is caused by inaccuracies of thermal measurement methods. In this paper, measurements on thermal conductivities of nanofluid mixtures (alumina/water) by means of two different methods are accomplished. The thermal conductivity was measured, and through the laser flash method, with the NETZSCH LFA 447 NanoFlash. Five samples of nanofluid, with varying alumina concentration was tested (0.1%, 0.5%, 2.0%, 3.0%, and 4.0%). The deviations between the ...

Highly Thermo-conductive Fluid with Boron Nitride Nanofillers

This study aims to use Boron Nitride (BN) materials as thermo-conductive fillers to enhance the heat transfer in fluids. For this study, BN nanotubes, and nanospheres were added to fluids, to test for individual thermal enhancements. With the addition of BN nanotubes to water, the thermal conductivity of the fluid was enhanced by 2.6 times. Also noted, was the increase in conductivity of the fluid with the addition of BN nanospheres. ...
