Thermal conductivity of porous materials

The effects of solid phase thermal conductivity, pore thermal conductivity, and pore volume fraction on the measured effective thermal conductivity of porous ceramics with pore volume fractions of 4 to 95% were investigated. The experimental results were then compared with pre-existing numerical models. It was found that ...

Thermal conductivity enhancement of nanostructure-based colloidal suspensions utilized as phase change materials for thermal energy storage: A review

The authors have presented a literature review on computational and experimental studies on the thermal conductivity of nanostructure enhanced phase change materials (nePCMs). It was found that a wide range of nanostructures have been investigated, from carbon nanostructures and carbon nanotubes to metal and metal ...

Thermal Conductivity of Poly-Alpha-Olefin (PAO)-Based Nanofluids

Three techniques were compared for the determination of thermal conductivity in poly-alpha-olefin (PAO)-based nanofluids. The three methods that were used were the transient hot wire, transient plane source, and laser flash techniques. The effects of temperature, nanoparticle concentration, and shape on the thermal conductivity ...

Combined effect of physical properties and convective heat transfer coefficient of nanofluids on their cooling efficiency

The authors have developed a model for the estimation of how a nanofluid will work as a coolant without having to perform a number of experiments. The nanofluids used in the study were four water based metallic oxides. These nanofluids were compared to water in ...
