An experimental determination of temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of cyclohexane-based nanofluids

Many studies have been conducted on nanofluids with bases of water and ethylene glycol. Cyclic alkane, more commonly known as cyclohexane, can be used as the base liquid for cold storage, however minimal research has been conducted with these solutions. This study explores the temperature-dependent ...

SiC Nanowires with Tunable Hydrophobicity/Hydrophilicity and Their Application as Nanofluids

The purpose of this study was to improve the wettability of silicon carbide (SiC) nanowires, in order for them to be used as thermoconductive fluids. Multiple experiments were conducted by exposing the SiC nanowires to hydrofluoric acid, tetraethyl orthosillicate, polyvinylpyrolidone and sodium hydroxide. Various tests, ...

Thermal energy storage characteristics of Cu–H2O nanofluids

The ability of Cu-H2O nanofluids to perform as phase change materials (PCMs) is investigated. The supercooling behavior of the nanofluids was determined as a function of copper nanoparticle concentration. The contact angle and thermal conductivity of this PCM were also determined experimentally. Based on ...

A Comparative Study on Thermal Conductivity and Rheology Properties of Alumina and Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Nanofluids

Numerical models for the calculation of thermal conductivity and rheology behavior of alumina and multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) nanofluids were evaluated by determining these properties experimentally and comparing the results to the models. The thermal conductivity was measured by the transient plane source method, and ...

Thermal properties and rheological behavior of water based Al2O3 nanofluid as a heat transfer fluid

Polyactic acid (PLA)-micro hexagonal boron nitride (hBN)-graphene nanoplatelet (GNP) polymer composites were prepared, and the effects of varying filler contents on the thermal and mechanical properties of the polymer composites were investigated. It was determined that the addition of the GNPs resulted in ...
