Heat transfer enhancement of Al2O3-H2O nanofluids flowing through a micro heat sink with complex structure

Nanofluids are used in heat sink applications to improve the rate of heat dissipation and reduce temperature gradients in electronics. This study specifically examined the thermal properties of Al2O3-H2O nanofluids used in micro heat sinks. An instrument measured the thermal conductivity of ...

Temperature dependent heat transfer performance of multi-walled carbon nanotube-based aqueous nanofluids at very low particle loadings

Thermally conductive nanoparticles are often added to conventional fluids to improve thermal properties. In this paper, the effect of small concentrations of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) on thermal conductivity over a range of temperatures was tested. A Thermal Constant Analyser measured the thermal conductivity of ...

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 conductivity of poly-alpha-olefin (PAO)-based nanofluids

This paper examined the thermal conductivity of poly-alpha-olefin (PAO) based nanofluids using three transient methods including the transient plane source (TPS) technique. They also explored how temperature, shape, and nanoparticle concentration affect thermal conductivity. The thermal properties of aluminum oxide/PAO and multi-walled carbon ...


Heat transfer biofluids: A novel approach towards weed management

Weeds are invasive species that have yet to be controlled and cost nations millions of dollars per year in crop losses. In this experiment, two of the worst weeds in the world, Lantana camara and Parthenium Hysterophorus, were studied to determine their capability of producing ...
