Enhanced thermal conductivity of ethylene glycol-based suspensions in the presence of silver nanoparticles of various sizes and shapes

Silver (Ag) has the highest thermal conductivity of all metals, making it an attractive nanoparticle for use in heat transfer systems. The shape of nanoparticles influences their thermal conductivity, so three varieties of Ag nanoparticles were tested in this study. The Thermal Constants Analyser measured ...

Effects of inclusion size on thermal conductivity and rheological behavior of ethylene glycol-based suspensions containing silver nanowires with various specific surface areas

The effects of silver nanowire size on the thermal conductivities of ethylene glycol-based nanofluids were investigated experimentally. The effects of altering the loading concentration of nanowires, and altering the temperature were also investigated. In addition to this, an investigation into the effects of the nanowire ...

Thermal energy storage performance of paraffin-based composite phase change materials filled with hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets

A paraffin-based composite phase change material (PCM) was prepared by the addition of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets to melted paraffin wax followed by vigorous stirring. The nanosheets were added in quantities ranging from 1 to 10 wt. %. A reference sample of pure paraffin was also prepared. ...

Effects of melting temperature and the presence of internal fins on the performance of a phase change material (PCM)-based heat sink

Two organic phase change materials (PCMs) were investigated to determine their effects on the thermal management capabilities of electronics. The thermo-physical properties of n-eicosane and 1-hexadecanol were determined experimentally, and the two PCMs were then added to unfinned, and finned heat sinks. It was determined ...

Experimental determination and fractal modeling of the effective thermal conductivity of autoclaved aerated concrete: Effects of moisture content

Autoclaved aerated concrete was studied because it has potential to be used in the design of energy-efficient buildings. Three different samples were tested, each with a unique density. Of particular interest to this work was the thermal conductivity of the samples, as this material would ...
