Thermal Conductivity of Suspensions of Carbon Nanotubes in Water

An investigation on the enhancement of the thermal conductivity of water with the addition of multiwalled carbon nanotubes, (C-MWNT). C-MWNT occupied 0.6% of the volume in the test sample for every test repetition. Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) was used as a dispersant. The measurement device was a transient hot wire, which was constructed for this purpose. The highest these procedures could raise the ...

New Measurements of the Apparent Thermal Conductivity of Nanofluids and Investigation of Their Heat Transfer Capabilities

This article studied the thermal conductivity values and measurements for the following two systems using the transient hot wire (THW) and transient plane source (TPS) techniques: ethylene glycol with added CuO, TiO2, or Al2O3 nanoparticles and water with added TiO2 or Al2O3 nanoparticles or multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). A TPS technique using a thermal conductivity analyzer ...

Synergistic effect of hybrid graphene nanoplatelet and multi-walled carbon nanotube fillers on the thermal conductivity of polymer composites and theoretical modeling of the synergistic effect

In this study, graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) and multi-walled carbon nanotube fillers (MWCNT) were simultaneously added to a polycarbonate matrix, in an attempt to improve thermal conductivity. Thermal conductivities of the composites were measured at room temperature. Results show that MWCNTs can improve thermal conductivity by filling gaps between GNPs. Additionally, a small amount of well dispersed MWCNTs increased thermal conductivity by 23% compared to composites containing only GNPs....

Enhanced thermoelectric properties of hybridized conducting aerogels based on carbon nanotubes and pyrolyzed resorcinol–formaldehyde resin

Multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbonized resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) resin were used to create a conducting aerogel with a high electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient but a low thermal conductivity. The addition of the MWCNTs caused the figure of merit (ZT) for the aerogel to increase by two orders of magnitude. The researchers determined that it was possibly to control the electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and Seebeck coefficient independently of ...

Thermal transport of oil and polymer composites filled with carbon nanotubes

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have extremely high thermal conductivity and can raise the thermal conductivity of a polymer matrix when used as an additive. Previous research has shown that random CNT orientation in polymer matrices gives a much lower thermal conductivity value than a specific alignment direction. This project tested the thermal conductivity of oils and polymers. Results were encouraging, with the thermal conductivity of the composites increasing linearly with the ...
