In-situ synthesis and attachment of colloidal ZnO nanoparticles inside porous carbon structures 

This study investigates the properties of a material to be used as an energy storage medium that can use energy stored from the summer months, and then release it during the winter. The proposed material uses a graphite foam, with ZnO coatings with a flower ...

Experimental study on the effective thermal conductivity of methane hydrate-bearing sand 

Hydrate bearing sediments, found in permafrost, have great potential as a future energy source. Therefore, the thermal properties need to be determined to design drilling and gas extraction processes. The thermal conductivity was measured through a transient plane source (TPS) method. The thermal conductivity values ...

Fabrication of highly porous silica thermal insulators prepared by gelation-freezing route

The purpose of this study was to produce high porosity silica thermal insulators through gelation-freezing. The thermal conductivities of the insulators in relation to porosity and microstructure were measured by a thermal constant analyzer based on the transient plane source (TPS) method. The thermal conductivities ...

Evaluation of energy band gap, thermal conductivity, phase transition temperature and elastic response of PS/CdS semiconducting optical nanocomposite 

Cadmium sulfide (CdS) nanoparticles were dispersed in a polystyrene (PS) matrix to synthesize semiconducting optical nanocomposites for industrial applications. In this paper, many characteristics of the PS-CdS thick films were studied including thermal conductivity using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the ...

Preparation and characterization of ultralow density silica aerogels by acetonitrile supercritical drying

In this study, ultralow density silica aerogels were synthesized and their thermal conductivities were tested to determine how supercritical drying affected the samples. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the silica aerogels using the transient plane source (TPS) method which determined that the ...
