The Apparent Thermal Conductivity of Liquids Containing Solid Particles of Nanometer Dimensions: A Critique

In the past twenty years, the behavior of the apparent thermal conductance of two or three phase systems comprised of solid particles with nanometer dimensions suspended in fluids, dubbed nanofluids, has been greatly contested in literature. After the study of the seven simplest nanofluids, Cu, ...

Potential applications of nanofluids for heat transfer

Multiple studies claiming the usefulness of nanofluids for the enhancement of heat transport have been proven ill-founded. Although they have significantly raised thermal conductivities, there is an inerrant increase in viscosity when adding nanoparticles to a liquid. This paper explores areas of research that analyze ...

Thermal conductivity of nanofluids – Experimental and Theoretical

The use of the transient hot wire method has previously displayed that the thermal conductivity of fluids can be significantly increased by introducing nano-particles. The paper discusses the known methods for predicting the thermal conductivity and finding correlations amongst data. When preforming initial simulations employing ...

Flame Retardant, Heat Insulating Cellulose Aerogels from Waste Cotton Fabrics by in Situ Formation of Magnesium Hydroxide Nanoparticles in Cellulose Gel Nanostructures

Aerogels are promising thermal insulators because of their low thermal conductivity, durability and eco-friendly nature. However, aerogels become a problem because of their highly flammable properties. In this study, flame retardant cellulose insulators were formed from scrap pieces of cotton. Firstly, an NaOH/Urea solution ...

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 ...
