#### Experimental determination of temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of solid eicosane-based silver nanostructure-enhanced phase change materials for thermal energy storage

This article investigated the effects of incorporating highly-conductive silver nanoparticles into eicosane-based phase change materials. The influence of silver nanoparticles on the thermal conductivity of the material was compared under three different solidification techniques. A Thermal Constants Analyzer measured the thermal conductivities of the samples ...

#### An experimental determination of temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of cyclohexane-based nanofluids

Many studies have been conducted on nanofluids with bases of water and ethylene glycol. Cyclic alkane, more commonly known as cyclohexane, can be used as the base liquid for cold storage, however minimal research has been conducted with these solutions. This study explores the temperature-dependent ...

#### Temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of eicosane-based phase change materials with copper oxide nanoparticles

In this study, pure eicosane and eicosane-CuO solid composites were prepared using ambient and ice-water bath solidification methods. A Thermal Constants Analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the samples using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that for both solidification methods, composite thermal ...

#### Experimental determination of temperature-dependent thermal conductivity of solid eicosane-based nanostructure-enhanced phase change materials

Nanoparticle-enhanced phase change materials (NePCMs) are nanofluids that can be used for thermal energy storage when they undergo solid-liquid phase transitions. In this study, a Thermal Constants Analyzer (TPS) measured the thermal conductivity of eicosane-based NePCM samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results ...
