Effects of hybrid nanofluid mixture in plate heat exchangers

In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were added to Al2O3/water nanofluids to determine their heat transfer and temperature drop properties compared to water and Al2O3/water nanofluids. A TPS 2500S thermal constants analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the Al2O3/...

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 ...


Mechanical and thermal performance of concrete and mortar cellular materials containing plastic waste

The expanding production of polymeric materials is causing plastic waste to become a growing concern. This study aimed to fabricate cement and mortar composites that contained plastic in an attempt to extend the life of non-reusable plastics. The thermal conductivity of the composite material was ...

Effective thermal conductivity of sintered metal foams: experiments and a model proposal

It is important that porous metal foams used in gas turbines do not exceed their upper temperature threshold. In this paper, the Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique was used to measure the thermal conductivity of metal foams up to 1000 °C. Results showed that the thermal ...
