Fabrication of paraffin-SiO2 shape-stabilized composite phase change material via chemical precipitation method for building energy conservation

The authors have prepared a shape-stabilized composite phase change material (ss-CPCM) using paraffin encapsulated in SiO2. SiO2 was chosen because of its low cost, such that the resultant ss-CPCM would be a feasible option for use at the commercial or industrial scale. The composite was ...

Novel nanofluids based on mesoporous silica for enhanced heat transfer

The authors have dispersed mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles in water and determined the thermal conductivity for each of the resulting nanofluids. It was determined that the thermal conductivity of the nanofluid was greater than that of water, so these nanofluids have potential for use in ...

Preparation of silica aerogel/polyurethane composites for the application of thermal insulation

The authors prepared silica aerogel/polyurethane composites by two different methods for the comparison of the two methods. The objective was to study the thermal insulation and hydrophobic properties of the composites to evaluate their potential for use as fabric membranes. It was found that ...

Heat transfer in microcellular polystyrene/multi-walled carbon nanotube nanocomposite foams

Polystyrene/multi-walled carbon nanotube (PS/MWCNT) nanocomposite foams were prepared in order to determine if these foams exhibited a reduced thermal conductivity in comparison to pristine polystyrene foam. The thermal conductivity of foams can be broken down into three modes of conduction: gas conductivity, solid ...

Effect of dispersion capability of organoclay on cellular structure and physical properties of PMMA/clay nanocomposite foams

The authors prepared PMMA/clay composites by the in situ bulk polymerization method. The prepared composites were characterized by FT-IR, WAXRD, SEM, TEM, DMA and the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure thermal conductivity. Not only were the thermal properties of the composites studied, ...
