Surfactant-free ionic liquid-based nanofluids with remarkable thermal conductivity enhancement at very low loading of graphene

The Transient Plane Source method was used in this research article to measure the thermal conductivity of an Ionanofluid, highly stable graphene (GE)-based nanofluid, at various temperatures. Researchers took special note of the effects of temperature, GE loading, presence of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), on the thermal conductivity of the nanofluid. Through experimental testing, it was determined that the nanofluid elicited a higher thermal conductivity, as compared to its ...

Thermal Conductivity Improvement of Polymer Films by Catechin-Modified Boron Nitride Nanotubes

Catechins were added to boron nitride nanotube (BNNTs)/polyvinyl formal (PVF) composite films, in hopes of further increasing the thermal conductivity of the film. After thermal conductivity testing, the composite films were determined to have an increased thermal conductivity, as compared to their neat form. Researchers determined that the increase of thermal conductivity was related to the aromatic rings within the catechin, which interact with the nanotube surfaces. Upon contact, ...

Heat transfer through glassfiber fabrics coated with silicone resin

In the building and construction industry today, weather resistant and flame resistant materials have become fundamental. As such, silicone coated materials have been intensively researched, as they increase a given materials resistivity to heat and flames. Due to complications and time constraints when testing coating technologies in a lab setting, more enforcement has been placed on numerical methods. Based on stitching patterns, geometry models of the material and heat transfer ...

Analysis of TPS technique applied to low-density insulating materials

This article highlights two assumptions of TPS the technique; the probe is thermally neutral, and the heat transfer is conductive. The researchers of this article mention an uncertainty of using a technique for measuring low-density and highly insulative materials. Accordingly, numerically noised thermograms of the thermal responses were recorded and applied during measurements, and the best-fitting procedure of a technique was applied. From this, it was determined that the presence ...

Transient hot plate method with two temperature measurements for thermal characterization of metals

This paper studied in-depth the transient hot plate method, by comparing this method to others in order to develop a short test time in which thermal effusivity and thermal conductivity can be measured simultaneously. To investigate this proposed model, four metal samples were analyzed using various techniques to ensure the accuracy between methods. To encompass a wide thermal conductive range, the thermal conductivities of the four metal samples tested, ranged ...
