Thermal optimisation of metal hydride reactors for thermal energy storage applications

Metal hydrides (MHs) have been considered as thermal energy storage (TES) materials for concentrated solar thermal applications. In this study, a TES system based on MgH2 was designed, constructed and optimized. The thermal conductivity of the MgH2/TiB2/ENG powder was measured using the transient ...

A review on modeling of the thermal conductivity of polymeric nanocomposites

This article explored the recent discoveries that have been made regarding the thermal conductivity of polymeric nanocomposites. The thermal conductivities were found using several methods: comparative method, laser flash method, stable state method, the "two thermometer-one heater" method, line-source method and transient plane source (TPS) ...


Thermoelectric properties of compacted Bi2-xSbxTe3 nanoplatelets with nominal composition of x = 1.5

Hydrothermal methods were used to synthesize nanoplatelets of Bi2-xSbxTe3. In this article, the electrical conductivity, thermopower, and thermal conductivity were the temperature-dependent transport parameters that were determined to calculate the dimensionless figure of merit, ZT. ...

Low-temperature phase transition and transport properties of β-Cu2−xSe fabricated using hydrothermal synthesis and evacuating-and-encapsulating sintering

Materials of β-Cu2−xSe were fabricated by using hydrothermal synthesis followed by evacuating-and-encapsulating sintering. These materials were then characterized using powder X-ray diffraction, field-emission scanning electron micrograph, electronic and thermal transport. Thermal conductivity measurements were carried out utilizing transient plane source (TPS) ...

Nanostructured SnSe: hydrothermal synthesis and disorder-induced enhancement of thermoelectric properties at medium temperatures

Nanostructured SnSe was created using hydrothermal methods and sintering in an evacuated-and-encapsulated ampoule. The effects of the synthesis and thermoelectric properties of SnSe using hydrothermal synthesis at low temperatures followed by evacuating-and-encapsulating sintering were then further investigated to determine their viability. One of the investigations ...
