Design, Assembly and Commisioning of a Test Apparatus for Characterizing Thermal Interface Materials

Thermal interface materials (TIMs) are often used in electronic and microelectronic applications. It can be difficult to determine their characteristics once they are in-situ because it is hard to account for the surface roughness and waviness of the objects the TIM is applied to. This ...

Review of latent heat thermal energy storage for improved material stability and effective load management

This article reviewed the use of phase change materials (PCM) as thermal energy storages (TES) as they can be used to substitute large-scale energy demand and assist both economically and environmentally. The thermophysical properties of different phase change materials were studied to assess their viability ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity of n octadecane containing carbon based nanomaterials

This paper focused on determining the thermal conductivity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) that were dispersed throughout n-octadecane as phase change materials (PCMs). The Thermal Constants Analyzer TPS 2500S measured the thermal conductivity of the n-octadecane samples at solid and liquid ...

Thermal performance enhancement of palmitic-stearic acid by adding graphene nanoplatelets and expanded graphite for thermal energy storage: A comparative study

The purpose of this study was to improve the wettability of silicon carbide (SiC) nanowires, in order for them to be used as thermoconductive fluids. Multiple experiments were conducted by exposing the SiC nanowires to hydrofluoric acid, tetraethyl orthosillicate, polyvinylpyrolidone and sodium hydroxide. Various tests, ...

A capric–palmitic–stearic acid ternary eutectic mixture/expanded graphite composite phase change material for thermal energy storage

This study suggested the use of capric acid–palmitic acid–stearic acid ternary eutectic mixture/expanded graphite (CA–PA–SA/EG) composite phase change material (PCM), as a low-temperature heat storage material. With a mass ratio of CA:PA:SA = 79.3 : 14.7 : 6.0, the mixture was prepared and ...
