Effective thermal conductivity of CdS/ZnS nanoparticles embedded polystyrene nanocomposites

In this paper, thermal properties of CdS and ZnS nanoparticles are examined to understand heat transfer behavior through polystyrene (PS) composites. The transient plane source (TPS) method was used to measure the thermal conductivities of the CdS/PS and ZnS/PS nanocomposites. Results showed that ...

Thermal characterization of nitrates and nitrates/expanded graphite mixture phase change materials for solar energy storage 

Nitrate materials play an important role in the development of latent thermal energy storage (LTES) systems. This paper examined the thermo-physical properties of sodium nitrate, potassium nitrate and their mixtures with expanded graphite (EG) additives for their applications in solar energy storage. The transient hot-wire ...

Long-term supercooled thermal energy storage (thermophysical properties of disodium hydrogenphosphate 12H2O)

This paper examined the thermophysical properties of hydrate using disodium hydrogenphosphate 12H2O to develop a long-term latent heat storage (LTLHS) using supercooling. The thermal conductivities of solid and liquid disodium hydrogenphosphate 12H2O were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed ...

Growth rate of crystallization in disodium hydrogenphosphate dodecahydrate

Phase change materials have supercooling characteristics that would benefit long-term latent heat thermal energy storage. This paper studied the physical and chemical properties associated with the growth rate of crystallization in disodium hydrogenphosphate dodecahydrate (DHD) as a function of a degree of supercooling. The transient ...
