Nitrogen doped hybrid carbon based composite dispersed nanofluids as working fluid for low-temperature direct absorption solar collectors

This article studied the thermal conductivity of deionized (DI) water and ethylene glycol (EG) based nanofluids with varying temperatures for different volume fractions of N-(rGO-MWNTs) (nitrogen doped hybrid structure of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs)). The thermal conductivity was found ...

Thermo-optical properties of partially unzipped multiwalled carbon nanotubes dispersed nanofluids for direct absorption solar thermal energy systems

Water is being used to absorb incident light for use in solar power applications. Adding nanoparticles to water improves the solar collection efficiency. In this paper, a Thermal Analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the nanofluids using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed ...

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 ...

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 ...
