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 ...

G-Plus report to Owens Corning thermal conductivity measurements of fiberglass

Fiberglass is used inside car mufflers as a noise reducer and insulator. The insulating properties of the fiberglass eliminates the need for muffler heat shields, however to properly design vehicles without heat shields, it is important to know the thermal conductivity of fiberglass at high ...

A novel phase change material containing mesoporous silica nanoparticles for thermal storage: A study on thermal conductivity and viscosity

A composite PCM was prepared from n-octadecane and mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were added in quantities ranging from 1 wt. % to 5 wt. %, and the thermal conductivity of each composite sample was determined as a function of temperature. The most significant enhancement in thermal conductivity ...

Effects of melting temperature and the presence of internal fins on the performance of a phase change material (PCM)-based heat sink

Two organic phase change materials (PCMs) were investigated to determine their effects on the thermal management capabilities of electronics. The thermo-physical properties of n-eicosane and 1-hexadecanol were determined experimentally, and the two PCMs were then added to unfinned, and finned heat sinks. It was determined ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity of n-octadecane containing carbon-based nanomaterials

The use of organic compounds as phase change materials (PCMs) is limited by the low thermal conductivity of these compounds. In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) were dispersed in n-octadecane to determine if this nanocomposite PCM would have a higher ...
