Reference Correlations for the Thermal Conductivity of 13 Inorganic Molten Salts

Employing many techniques, including that of the transient hot wire, experimental data relating to the thermal conductivity of 13 inorganic molten salts have been gathered and critically examined with the purpose of building a reference correlation. The data in this paper was gathered at a 95% confidence level....

Correlation of the Thermal Conductivity of Normal and Parahydrogen from the Triple Point to 1000 K and up to 100 MPa

Thermal conductivity measurements of hydrogen and parahydrogen were taken over a temperature range from their triple point to 1000 Kelvin. A new theoretically based correlation was then adopted that agreed well with existing data and explained the case of the dilute-gas thermal conductivity. The analysis displayed that in the critical region, the enhanced thermal conductivity can be well represented with an equation containing ...

Potential applications of nanofluids for heat transfer

Multiple studies claiming the usefulness of nanofluids for the enhancement of heat transport have been proven ill-founded. Although they have significantly raised thermal conductivities, there is an inerrant increase in viscosity when adding nanoparticles to a liquid. This paper explores areas of research that analyze nanofluid properties that could potiential indicate future applications. A promising direction is using particles that can change ...

Reference Data for the Thermal Conductivity of Saturated Liquid Toluene Over a Wide Range of Temperatures

Liquid toluene is a material used in industrial processes, and generally the thermal conductivity needs to be determined for efficient use. However, the thermal conductivity varies depending on high temperatures and other physical variables. The transient hot wire method has previously been used to obtain measurements of the thermal conductivity of toluene under multiple conditions to create reference data. This paper displays ...

Thermal conductivity of nanofluids – Experimental and Theoretical

The use of the transient hot wire method has previously displayed that the thermal conductivity of fluids can be significantly increased by introducing nano-particles. The paper discusses the known methods for predicting the thermal conductivity and finding correlations amongst data. When preforming initial simulations employing the Finite Element Method (FEM), this paper shows that there is still substantial experimental progress to be ...
