Measurement and model on thermal conductivities of carbon nanotube nanorefrigerants

The authors prepared a series of carbon nanotube (CNT) nanorefrigerants with varying size and amount of nanotubes to determine how these properties affect thermal conductivity. A TPS Instrument was used to measure thermal conductivity of the nanorefrigerants; R113 was used as a host nanorefrigerant. It was determined that higher concentrations of smaller diameter CNTs results in higher nanofrigerant thermal conductivity. A few theoretical models were also used to compare to ...

Study on dispersion behavior and thermal conductivity of Cu-H2O nanofluids

The addition of Cu nanoparticles to water was studied at different pH values and different dispersant concentrations by the measurement of zeta potential and absorbency. Thermal conductivity was measured. It was found that the ideal properties of the nanofluid were obtained at pH 9.5....

Simultaneous determination of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of food and agricultural materials using a transient plane-source method

Since there was no literature on using the transient plane source method for the measurement of thermal conductivity and diffusivity of food products the authors did it themselves. They tested a variety of products including water, mineral oil, ethanol, beef, chicken and apples and determined that using the transient plane source method to simultaneously measure thermal conductivity and diffusivity was an accurate method....

Influence of pH on Nanofluids- Viscosity and Thermal Conductivity

This article outlines the effect of adding Al2O3 and Cu nanoparticles to water and measuring the thermal conductivities and viscosities of the mixtures. The effect of pH was taken into account and it was found that there are optimal pH values for each of the nanoparticle mixtures that give the highest thermal conductivities and lowest viscosities. Research shows that thermal conductivity and viscosity are closely related to each other. ...
