Enhanced thermal conductivity of n octadecane containing carbon based nanomaterials

This paper focused on determining the thermal conductivity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) that were dispersed throughout n-octadecane as phase change materials (PCMs). The Thermal Constants Analyzer TPS 2500S measured the thermal conductivity of the n-octadecane samples at solid and liquid ...

A novel phase change material containing mesoporous silica nanoparticles for thermal storage: A study on thermal conductivity and viscosity

A composite PCM was prepared from n-octadecane and mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were added in quantities ranging from 1 wt. % to 5 wt. %, and the thermal conductivity of each composite sample was determined as a function of temperature. The most significant enhancement in thermal conductivity ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity of n-octadecane containing carbon-based nanomaterials

The use of organic compounds as phase change materials (PCMs) is limited by the low thermal conductivity of these compounds. In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) were dispersed in n-octadecane to determine if this nanocomposite PCM would have a higher ...

Experimental investigation on thermal and rheological properties of n-octadecane with dispersed TiO2 nanoparticles 

The thermal and rheological properties of n-octadecane, a phase change material, with dispersed TiO2 nanoparticles were investigated at varying temperatures. The properties were investigated in both the solid and liquid phases, with varying mass fractions of TiO2 nanoparticles. The thermal conductivity was found to be ...
