Dispersion behavior and thermal conductivity characteristics of Al2O3-H2O nanofluids

The field of nanofluids is relatively new, however researchers in this article aimed to research their thermal conductivity and dispersion behaviours. A nanofluid consists of free-floating, solid nanoparticles suspended in a base fluid. Specifically, Al2O3-H2O nanofluids were investigated in this study. Using a thermal constants analyzer, the thermal conductivities of various modifications of nanofluids were measured. Research concluded that pH and concentrations of SDBS dispersants have a ...

Thermal Conductivity Enhancement Dependent pH and Chemical Surfactant for Cu-H2O Nanofluids

Thermal conductivity of heating and cooling fluids with added nanoparticles dubbed 'nanofluids' are used as potential to improve the efficiency of heat transfer fluids using a thermal constants analyser. The Thermal conductivity enhancements of Cu-H2O nanofluids are dependent on the weight fraction of nanoparticles, pH values and sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS) surfactant concentration of nano-suspensions. Combining both the pH and chemical surfactant is recommended to improve the thermal conductivity for ...
