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 a decrease in thermal conductivity in comparison to a PLA-hBN composite unless the GNP:hBN ratio was 1:1, where the thermal conductivity was equal to that ...

High thermally conductive PLA based composites with tailored hybrid network of hexagonal boron nitride and graphene nanoplatelets

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 a decrease in thermal conductivity in comparison to a PLA-hBN composite unless the GNP:hBN ratio was 1:1, where the thermal conductivity was equal to that ...

Improved heat recovery from paraffin-based phase change materials due to the presence of percolating graphene networks

Four different paraffin-based nanocomposite phase change materials (PCMs) were prepared by dispersion of 20 v. % of graphene, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), aluminum, or TiO2 nanoparticles into a paraffin matrix. It was found that the two carbon-based nanoparticles reduced the time required for melting and solidification of the PCM by a greater amount than the two other nanoparticles. The graphene-paraffin PCM was found to reduce the melt and re-solidification time by the ...

Physical study of room-temperature-cured epoxy/thermally reduced graphene oxides with various contents of oxygen-containing groups

Epoxy nanocomposites containing thermally reduced graphene oxides (TRGs) with different oxygen contents were prepared and their mechanical and thermal properties were investigated. It was found that increasing the number of oxygen containing groups on the TRGs resulted in reduced agglomeration of the graphene oxides within the epoxy matrix. Therefore, in samples with a higher oxygen content, a higher interfacial contact area is present between the organic and inorganic phases in ...

Improved Thermal Conductivity of Poly(trimethylene terephthalate-block-poly(tetramethylene oxide) Based Nanocomposites Containing Hybrid Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes/Graphene Nanoplatelets Fillers

Poly(trimethylene terephthalate)-block-poly(tetramethylene oxide) (PTT-PMTO) copolymer-based nanocomposites containing a combination of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) as carbon nanofillers were investigated to determine their thermal conductivities. Nanocomposites having a total carbon nanofiller concentration of 0.4 and 0.6 wt. % were preparared with varying amounts of each nanofiller, and the thermal conductivity was measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method. The dispersion of the nanofillers was observed by ...
