Heat transfer biofluids: A novel approach towards weed management

Weeds are invasive species that have yet to be controlled and cost nations millions of dollars per year in crop losses. In this experiment, two of the worst weeds in the world, Lantana camara and Parthenium Hysterophorus, were studied to determine their capability of producing heat transfer fluids (“biofluids”) that can be sold to reduce the economic burden they cause. The Thermal Constants Analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the ...

Effects of MWNTs on phase change enthalpy and thermal conductivity of a solid-liquid organic PCM

In this paper, researchers investigated the effects of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs), on the thermal conductivity and phase change enthalpy of palmitic acid (PA), a solid to liquid phase change material. The research concluded that as the concentration of MWNTs is increased, the thermal conductivity of the composite increases, compared to that of PA alone. Also in this study, researchers investigated the effects of various MWNTs surface modifications, on the ...

Improving the heat transfer of nanofluids and nanolubricants with carbon nanotubes

Many limitations exist within the development of energy efficient heat transfer fluids; however, low thermal conductivity of these fluids is the main issue. In order to improve the thermal conductivity of these heat transfer fluids, researchers in this study performed strenuous research and ultimately created a new and improved fluid. In this newly designed material, nanoparticles and carbon-nanotubes (CNTs) were suspended within the fluid, aiming to increase the fluids thermal ...
