Passive cooling is a method of dissipating heat rejected by electronic devices, and when associated to a phase change can be very effective. Phase change materials (PCMs) are widely used ...Read More

In 1967, Gustafsson proposed the idea of the transient plane source (TPS) method, but it was not developed until the 1990’s with the help of Gustavsson. The TPS method uses an ...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
