Silver incorporated microencapsulation of n-hexadecane andn-octadecane appropriate for dynamic thermal management in textiles

In this paper, the authors discuss the preparation of microencapsulated phase change materials (PCMs). The PCMs used in this study were n-hexadecane and n-octadecane, and the shell was made up of poly(urea-formaldehyde). The effect of dispersing silver nanoparticles in the shells on the thermal storage properties of these encapsulated PCMs was also investigated. The enthalpies of fusion of the samples were determined experimentally, as was the thermal conductivity. It ...

Improvement of Soft Tooling Process Through Particle Reinforcement with Polyurethane Mould

In the soft tooling process for making moulds, polyurethane is often used as a flexible mould material. The low thermal conductivity of polyurethane results in a long solidification time of the wax/plastic pattern produced in the soft tooling process. In an effort to address this issue, the authors of this article have added highly conductive fillers to polyurethane. The fillers used for this study were aluminum fine powder and ...

The design of a ceramic phosphor plate with functional materials for application in high power LEDs 

Lutetium aluminum garnet activated by cerium (LuAG:Ce) materials containing functional materials (SiO2 and MgO) were prepared. These materials are used in LEDs, and they require a high thermal conductivity in order to minimize thermal aging. The functional materials were added in order to increase the thermal conductivity, as well as the luminescent properties of these materials. It was found that SiO2 did not improve the luminescent properties, but MgO ...

Performance Assessment of Passive Fire Protection Materials

Three reference passive fire protection materials were tested to determine the effect that fire exposure has on their thermophysical properties. It was determined that the thermophysical properties during fire exposure have a significant impact on the performance of the materials. The knowledge of how the properties of these materials change upon exposure to fire will aid researchers in being able to better calculate the time to failure of the object ...
