Nanofluids are used to improve the thermal conductivity of heat transfer fluids. This study examined the effects on thermal conductivity of zinc oxide (ZnO)/ethylene glycol + water nanofluids as increasing ...Read More
Phase change materials (PCMs) are substances that release large amounts of energy in the form of latent heat when they freeze. Paraffin waxes have many of the desired characteristics PCMs ...Read More
Some researchers argue that the anomalous k enhancement data, for nanofluids, is caused by inaccuracies of thermal measurement methods. In this paper, measurements on thermal conductivities of nanofluid mixtures (alumina/...

Viscosity and thermal conductivity measurements of water-based nanofluids containing titanium oxide nanoparticles
This article looks at the thermal properties of titanium oxide (TiO2) based nanofluids and their applications as thermal vectors. The nanoparticle size was studied by dynamic light scattering (DLS) and ...Read More
