Enhanced thermal conductivity by the magnetic field in heat transfer nanofluids containing carbon nanotube

The researchers in this paper were the first to report that the thermal conductivity of the heat transfer nanofluids has the ability to be enhanced by an external magnetic field. This is possible due to carbon nanotubes and magnetic-field-sensitive nanoparticles of Fe2O3. It was ...

Influence of pH and SDBS on the Stability and Thermal Conductivity of Nanofluids

This experiment outlined an investigation into heat transfer of two water-based nanofluids; H2O-Al2O3 and H2O-Cu. The absorbency and thermal conductivity of both nanofluids was measured under various pH values and sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS) concentrations, to determine whether an effect on heat ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity by aggregation in heat transfer nanofluids containing metal oxide nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes

The thermal conductivity of heat transfer nanofluids has been determined to increase by 10%, when containing metal oxide nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes. The fluid viscosity of the nanofluids is relatively the same as water, and therefore cannot not account for the increase in thermal conductivity. However, ...

Investigation of pH and SDBS on enhancement of thermal conductivity in nanofluids

This study aimed to improve the heat transfer capabilities of water-based nanofluids, by varying the concentration of sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS), a chemical surfactant, as well as by altering the pH. It is said that the thermal conductivity and stability of nanofluids are directly related ...
