Experimental analysis of heat transfer and friction factor of nanofluid as a coolant in a corrugated plate heat exchanger

Al2O3 nanofluids were prepared with 2, 3, and 4 vol% Al2O3 nanoparticles in water for use as a coolant in plate heat exchangers. Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, the thermophysical properties of the nanofluids were studied. Correlation equations were obtained for Nusselt number and ...

Influence of pH on Nanofluids’ Viscosity and Thermal Conductivity

The authors used the transient plane source (TPS) technique to investigate the effect of pH on nanofluid thermal conductivity and viscosity. Cu and Al2O3 nanoparticles were dispersed in water to create two nanofluids. pH was then varied and thermal conductivity and viscosity measurements ...

An experimental investigation of enhanced thermal conductivity and expedited unidirectional freezing of cyclohexane-based nanoparticle suspensions utilized as nano-enhanced phase change materials (NePCM)

Through the addition of copper oxide nanoparticles to cyclohexane in varying concentrations, a series of nano-enhanced phase change materials (NePCM) were prepared. The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to characterize the NePCM at multiple temperatures. It was determined experimentally that increasing concentrations of ...

Analysis of factors influencing thermal conductivity and viscosity in different kinds of surfactant solutions

Surfactants are often used in nanofluids to help improve dispersion and prevent aggregation of the resident nanoparticles. In this study, the researchers used the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure the thermal conductivity of a variety of nanofluids with different surfactants of varying concentrations, ...
