The investigation of thermal conductivity and energy storage properties of graphite/paraffin composites

The low thermal conductivity of paraffin hinders its ability to be used as a PCM, and so in this article the authors created a composite made up of paraffin and micron-size graphite flakes (MSGFs) in order to hopefully increase thermal conductivity and energy storage capabilities. The results showed that increasing concentrations of MSGFs corresponded to 'enormous' increases in thermal conductivity. The addition of MSGFs to paraffin did not affect its ...

Dispersion behavior and thermal conductivity characteristics of Al2O3-H2O nanofluids

The field of nanofluids is relatively new, however researchers in this article aimed to research their thermal conductivity and dispersion behaviours. A nanofluid consists of free-floating, solid nanoparticles suspended in a base fluid. Specifically, Al2O3-H2O nanofluids were investigated in this study. Using a thermal constants analyzer, the thermal conductivities of various modifications of nanofluids were measured. Research concluded that pH and concentrations of SDBS dispersants have a ...

Thermal Conductivity Enhancement Dependent pH and Chemical Surfactant for Cu-H2O Nanofluids

Thermal conductivity of heating and cooling fluids with added nanoparticles dubbed 'nanofluids' are used as potential to improve the efficiency of heat transfer fluids using a thermal constants analyser. The Thermal conductivity enhancements of Cu-H2O nanofluids are dependent on the weight fraction of nanoparticles, pH values and sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS) surfactant concentration of nano-suspensions. Combining both the pH and chemical surfactant is recommended to improve the thermal conductivity for ...
