Measurement of thermal conductivity with the needle probe

This paper explains an addition to a larger NPL project with the purpose to validate the use of the transient contact-probes for measurement of the thermal conductivity of soft solids such as foods, powders, and biological materials. Transient line source methods are used in this ...

Thermal optimisation of metal hydride reactors for thermal energy storage applications

Metal hydrides (MHs) have been considered as thermal energy storage (TES) materials for concentrated solar thermal applications. In this study, a TES system based on MgH2 was designed, constructed and optimized. The thermal conductivity of the MgH2/TiB2/ENG powder was measured using the transient ...

Effect of solid-state shear milling on the physicochemical properties of thermally conductive low-temperature expandable graphite/low-density polyethylene composites

To improve the thermal conductivity of polymeric matrixes, conducting fillers were added to polymers, specifically graphite, having good thermal conductivity and dispersibility. Exfoliated graphite (EG) and graphite nanoplatelets (GNP) are excellent alternatives to metal and carbon as conductive polymer composites, through solution mixing and melt ...

Thermal performance enhancement of palmitic-stearic acid by adding graphene nanoplatelets and expanded graphite for thermal energy storage: A comparative study

The purpose of this study was to improve the wettability of silicon carbide (SiC) nanowires, in order for them to be used as thermoconductive fluids. Multiple experiments were conducted by exposing the SiC nanowires to hydrofluoric acid, tetraethyl orthosillicate, polyvinylpyrolidone and sodium hydroxide. Various tests, ...
