Preparation and thermal properties of polyethylene glycol/expanded graphite blends for energy storage

Through the addition of expanded graphite (EG) to polyethylene glycol, the authors were able to enhance the thermal conductivity of the phase change material (PCM). The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the PCM. The amount of EG ...

Thermal properties of pineapple leaf fiber reinforced composites

Varying weight percentages of pineapple leaf fiber were added to phenolformaldehyde (PF) in order to generate a composite material. Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, the thermal conductivities of the varying weight percentage composites were studied. It was found that increasing weight % pineapple leaf ...

Simultaneous determination of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of food and agricultural materials using a transient plane-source method

Since there was no literature on using the transient plane source method for the measurement of thermal conductivity and diffusivity of food products the authors did it themselves. They tested a variety of products including water, mineral oil, ethanol, beef, chicken and apples and determined ...

Influence of pH on Nanofluids- Viscosity and Thermal Conductivity

This article outlines the effect of adding Al2O3 and Cu nanoparticles to water and measuring the thermal conductivities and viscosities of the mixtures. The effect of pH was taken into account and it was found that there are optimal pH values for each of ...
