Simultaneous Estimation and Modeling of Thermophysical Properties of Big-Eyed Tuna and Pacific Cod

Extreme care must be taken regarding the proper processing and storage of market seafood the correct amount of heat transfer with occur in order to deliver healthy and fresh tasting food. Measurements of the thermal conductivities of big-eyed tuna and pacific cod were taken with a modified transient line source probe method in a temperature range of 5 - 50°C. Accurate predictions are ...

Selection principles and thermophysical properties of high temperature phase change materials for thermal energy storage: A review

This article examined the capacity of phase change materials (PCM) to act as phase change thermal energy storages (TES). The review also investigated the thermophysical properties of high temperature PCMs, which can be used as a reference for the design of high temperature phase change TES systems. The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used, among others, to determine the thermal conductivity of the PCMs. It was noted that there ...

Evaluation of thermophysical properties of thermal conductive polymer composites

Thermal characteristics of polymer composites are similar to the properties of metal, with the mechanical properties being similar to plastics. Thermal conductivity of a polymer composite depends on geometry of the filler, and interaction and dispersal of the filler within the polymer matrix. In this study, thermal conductivity of copper and Al₂O₃ filled polymer composites were investigated. A Thermal Constant Analyzer was used to measure thermal conductivity of the ...


Thermal properties of carbon nanotube reinforced metal composites

The application of carbon nanotubes (CNT) to thermal management devices has recently drawn much attention. This study produced and examined metal-carbon nanotube composites for use in highly conductive yet stable thermal management materials. The structural and thermophysical properties of metal-CNT composites were examined, including the measurement of thermal conductivity using the Thermal Constants Analyzer TPS transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that generally, inverse relationships were observed between thermal ...


Investigation of ethanol based secondary fluids with denaturing agents and other additives used for borehole heat exchangers

Borehole heat exchangers are used in conjunction with ground source heat pumps in Nordic countries. Aqueous ethanol solutions are commonly used with other secondary fluids such as water in borehole heat exchangers to decrease the freezing point of the liquid. However, ethanol based mediums contain denaturing agents that can affect the thermal properties of the secondary fluids. In this study, a Thermal Constants Analyzer used the Transient Plane Source method ...
