Effects of inclusion size on thermal conductivity and rheological behavior of ethylene glycol-based suspensions containing silver nanowires with various specific surface areas

The effects of silver nanowire size on the thermal conductivities of ethylene glycol-based nanofluids were investigated experimentally. The effects of altering the loading concentration of nanowires, and altering the temperature were also investigated. In addition to this, an investigation into the effects of the nanowire ...

Thermal Conductivity Measurements in Nanofluids via the Transient Planar Source Method

The transient plane source (TPS) method was used to measure the thermal conductivity of automotive coolants, as well as equivalent nanofluids to these coolants. The results of the study indicated that the TPS was able to accurately measure the thermal conductivity, with an error of ...

Photochemical Generation of Ag, Pd, and Pt Particles in Octane

Octane solutions containing metal salts were irradiated with 350 nm photons using oleoyl sarcosine as a particle stabilizer and benzophenone as a particle sensitizer to produce suspensions of nanometer-sized metal particles. The goal of this study was to prepare nanofluids with enhanced thermal conductivity in comparison ...

Thermal Conductivity of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotube Dispersions: Role of Interfacial Effects

The thermal transport properties of nanofluids containing single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in ethylene glycol and (poly)-alpha olefins (PAO) were investigated. It was found that the addition of SWCNTs enhanced the thermal conductivity of each of the two base fluids, with this enhancement increasing as ...

Thermal Conductivity of Alumina and Silica Nanofluids

The effects of particle size/shape, base fluid, and volumetric concentration on the thermal conductivity of nanofluids has been studied. It was found that decreasing the particle size leads to an increased thermal conductivity, and that using water as a base fluid led to the ...
