An explanation of the Al2O3 nanofluid thermal conductivity based on the phonon theory of liquid

This article examined how a variety of mechanisms (layering, Brownian motion, clustering, ballistic phonon motion, thermal boundary resistance, and mass difference scattering) affect the thermal conductivity of alumina based nanofluid. The thermal conductivity values were found using the transient plane source (TPS) method. It was ...

Thermal conduction through diamond – silicon heterostructures

The thermal conductivity and thermal boundary resistance between ultrananocrystalline diamond (UNCD) and microcrystalline diamond (MCD) films on silicon wafers were evaluated. It was found that the MCD/Si composite wafers were more thermally conductive than the UNCD/Si wafers over the temperature range tested. It ...

Temperature-dependent thermal properties of a paraffin phase change material embedded with herringbone style graphite nanofibers

The authors outline a method of enhancing the thermal properties of a paraffin phase change material through the addition of herringbone-style graphite nanofibers (HGNFs). It was found that the solid-phase thermal conductivity increased exponentially with the presence of HGNFs; however, a significant increase in the ...

Experimental and numerical study of the effective thermal conductivity of nano composites with thermal boundary resistance

Thermal interface resistance results from small gaps and surface geometry mismatches between two materials that make up a composite. Thermal interface resistance is present in most any material that is comprised of two or more components. In the field of thermal interface materials, the majority ...
