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 ...

Thermal conductivity measurement

The transient technique is the commercial method used to test the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of solids. With the instrument, a double spiral nickel sensor is sandwiched between two homogenous samples, and as the sensor pulses electrical currents through the sample, it ...

Effect of the addition of wood shavings on thermal conductivity of sand concretes: Experimental study and modelling

Through the use of wood shavings as a filler for sand concretes, the authors have been able to improve the thermal properties of the prepared concrete as well as reuse a waste product. The previously used concrete had a higher thermal conductivity and higher density, ...
