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 ...

Anisotropy in Thermal Transport Properties of Cast-y TiAl Alloys

The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to determine the anisotropy of titanium aluminide bars with different microstructures. The thermal conductivity of the bars was measured at temperatures up to 700oC. It was determined that the anisotropy in the bars was approximately 15% at all ...

Enhanced Thermal Conductivity and Expedited Freezing of Nanoparticle Suspensions Utilized as Novel Phase Change Materials

Nanoparticle suspensions were prepared in two PCMs to determine the effect of the addition of nanoparticles on thermal conductivity and expediting freezing. The base PCMs used were cyclohexane and eicosane, and copper oxide nanoparticles were suspended in these hydrocarbons to produce nano-enhanced PCMs (nePCMs). The ...


Development of thermal insulating and sound absorbing agro-sourced materials from auto linked flax-tows

A rigid, self-supporting material derived from flax tow was prepared and its mechanical, thermal, hydrous, and acoustic properties were investigated. The study was performed to determine if this material would be a viable option for use as a biodegradable thermal and acoustic insulation in walls. ...

Microstructural and thermophysical properties of Uā€“6 wt.%Zr alloy for fast reactor application

Thermophysical properties of a uranium-6 wt. % zirconium alloy were investigated at high temperatures to evaluate the performance of the alloy as a driver fuel for a liquid-metal cooled fast reactor. Of particular interest to the authors were the coefficient of thermal expansion, the specific heat, ...
