Rheological and Thermal Transport Characteristics of a Transformer Oil Based Ferrofluid

This article studied the flow and thermal transport characteristics of a ferrofluid based on transformer oil (Mogul Trafo CZ-A) and iron oxide nanoparticles. The thermal conductivity, specific heat, and thermal diffusivity were calculated using the transient plane source (TPS) method and a thermal constants analyzer was used for performing the measurements. It was found that the presence of the magnetic nanoparticles in the transformer oil (3%) increased its thermal conductivity by ...

Thermal conductivity measurement of liquid materials by a method in short-duration microgravity environments

In this article, researchers employed the use of the TPS method to test the thermal conductivities of various liquid materials, including mercury and silicone oils of different viscosities, in short-duration microgravity environments. The data received for the lower viscosity silicone liquids displayed extreme effects of thermal convection in the microgravity, as compared to the higher viscosity silicone liquids. When mercury was exposed to the microgravity environment, the thermal conductivity was ...
