Enhancement of Heat Transfer Coefficient using Fe₂O₃-Water Nanofluids

A detailed development of a local heat transfer probe specifically designed for analyzing nanofluids. In this paper iron oxide is used as a test subject to determine the accuracy of the probe. Different concentrations were measured ranging between 0 and 0.09% by volume. Thermal conductivity is also measured by a TLS-100 instrument, based on the transient line source. It is shown that the heat ...

Nano-PCMs for enhanced energy storage and passive cooling applications

Phase change materials (PCMs) are substances that release large amounts of energy in the form of latent heat when they freeze. Paraffin waxes have many of the desired characteristics PCMs exhibit except that they have low thermal conductivity. In this experiment, Alumina and Carbon Black nanoparticles were added to two types of paraffin waxes (melting points of 20-25 °C) to increase their thermal conductivity. A Transient Plane Source (TPS) measured ...
