Thermal conductivity enhancement of nanostructure-based colloidal suspensions utilized as phase change materials for thermal energy storage: A review

The authors have presented a literature review on computational and experimental studies on the thermal conductivity of nanostructure enhanced phase change materials (nePCMs). It was found that a wide range of nanostructures have been investigated, from carbon nanostructures and carbon nanotubes to metal and metal ...

Photochemical Generation of Ag, Pd, and Pt Particles in Octane

Octane solutions containing metal salts were irradiated with 350 nm photons using oleoyl sarcosine as a particle stabilizer and benzophenone as a particle sensitizer to produce suspensions of nanometer-sized metal particles. The goal of this study was to prepare nanofluids with enhanced thermal conductivity in comparison ...

Increasing the Service Life of Bridge Decks by Incorporating Phase-Change Materials to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles

The effects of incorporating phase change materials (PCMs) into concrete on the potential service lives of bridges were investigated. It was determined that PCMs could potentially be used in the future to reduce the effects of freeze-thaw cycles on bridges, but more work needed to ...

Thermal conductivity improvement of composite carbon foams based on tannin-based disordered carbon matrix and graphite fillers

Composite carbon foams were prepared by mixing tannin-based resin with various graphite powders in an effort to improve the thermal conductivity relative to pristine carbon foams in order to use them as hosts for phase-change materials. It was found that using graphite powder with smaller ...

Fabrication of paraffin-SiO2 shape-stabilized composite phase change material via chemical precipitation method for building energy conservation

The authors have prepared a shape-stabilized composite phase change material (ss-CPCM) using paraffin encapsulated in SiO2. SiO2 was chosen because of its low cost, such that the resultant ss-CPCM would be a feasible option for use at the commercial or industrial scale. The composite was ...
