Enhanced thermal conductivity of n octadecane containing carbon based nanomaterials

Author(s): , ,

This paper focused on determining the thermal conductivity of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) that were dispersed throughout n-octadecane as phase change materials (PCMs). The Thermal Constants ...

A novel phase change material containing mesoporous silica nanoparticles for thermal storage: A study on thermal conductivity and viscosity

Author(s): , , , , ,

A composite PCM was prepared from n-octadecane and mesoporous silica (MPSiO2) nanoparticles. The nanoparticles were added in quantities ranging from 1 wt. % to 5 wt. %, and the thermal conductivity of each composite ...

Enhanced thermal conductivity of n-octadecane containing carbon-based nanomaterials

Author(s): , ,

The use of organic compounds as phase change materials (PCMs) is limited by the low thermal conductivity of these compounds. In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (...

Combined effect of physical properties and convective heat transfer coefficient of nanofluids on their cooling efficiency

Author(s): , , , , , , ,

The authors have developed a model for the estimation of how a nanofluid will work as a coolant without having to perform a number of experiments. The nanofluids used in ...
