Investigation of the Thermal Conductivity and the Viscosity of Carbon Black Heat Transfer Nanofluids

Seven distinct samples of nanofluids consisting of different concentrations of spherical graphitized carbon black in an ethylene glycol solution were analyzed to determine their thermal and rheological behavior. The thermal conductivity measurements were made at 20°C and 30°C with a transient hot wire instrument made by Thermtest called THW-L2 and specifically designed to measure the thermal conductivity of liquids. This study was ...

Measurement of thermal conductivity with the needle probe

This paper explains an addition to a larger NPL project with the purpose to validate the use of the transient contact-probes for measurement of the thermal conductivity of soft solids such as foods, powders, and biological materials. Transient line source methods are used in this paper to accurately measure the thermal conductivities of a large variety of materials. More attention is paid ...

Physical Properties of 7-Methyl-1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4.4.0]dec-5-ene (mTBD)

7-Methyl-1,5,7-triazabicyclo[4,40]dec-5-ene (mTBD) is an important industrial chemical that is commonly used as a catalyst. Prior to the research conducted by Baird et al, the only available data on this chemical pertained to its density and a single vapor pressure value that is provided on chemical safety data sheets. This paper presents the first reliable, publicly available data on the thermodynamic and transport properties of mTBD. These values ...

The Production of Polyurethane from Waste Vegetable Oil-Based Polyols and Modelling of Rheological Properties

A study of the potential use of renewable resources to produce polyols, which in turn are used to produce polyurethane. The thermal conductivity of a number of results was taken using the TLS-100 device. This device functions using the transient line source method. A future increase in the production of polyurethane through renewable resources is imperative to reduce the consumption of fossil ...

The Thermal Conductivity of Methane and Tetrafluoromethane in the Limit of Zero Density

An accurate representation of the thermal conductivity of methane and tetrafluoromethane in the limit of zero density valid for the temperature range 120–1000 K with a highest uncertainty of 4%. Also included is a temperature range of 280–750 K with a highest uncertainty of 5% for methane and tetrafluoromethane respectively. These theoretically based correlations are compared to bodies of data, collected mainly from the transient hot ...
