Enhanced thermal conductivity of n octadecane containing carbon based nanomaterials

This paper focused on determining the thermal conductivity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) that were dispersed throughout n-octadecane as phase change materials (PCMs). The Thermal Constants Analyzer TPS measured the thermal conductivity of the n-octadecane samples at solid and liquid phases using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the solid phase n¬-octadecane/MWCNTs samples increased with nanotube concentration. ...

An approach to correlate experimental and theoretical thermal conductivity of MWNT/PMMA polymer composites 

This study is investigating how the thermal conductivity of a PMMA polymer filled with multi walled carbon nano tubes (MWNT) changes with temperature, and wt % MWNT. Also, the series, parallel, Lewis/Neilson and empirical formula models were used to quantify how well the measured values correlate with the calculated values. The thermal conductivity was measured with a transient plane source (TPS) method. The thermal conductivity of the polymer increased with ...

Preparation and characterization of thermally conductive polystyrene/carbon nanotubes composites

Researchers in this study aimed to develop polymer composites with high thermal conductivity, using polystyrene (PS) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs). These composites were prepared by ultrasonic radiation, through a simple-solution-evaporation method. Poly(styrene-co-maleic anhydride) (PSMA), with a benzene group and experiencing a strong affinity for PS was used as a base, to allow the MWNTs to be dispersed within the composite (MWNT-g-SMA). Results determined that the addition of MWNTs ...

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 ...
