Benzene: A further liquid thermal conductivity standard

Analysis of the available data to expand the liquid thermal conductivity standard of benzene along the saturation line. Most of this data has been collected using the transient hot wire technique and is of such quality that for most of the liquid range, the new standard reference values can be proposed with uncertaintie values lower than 1% ....

The Thermal Conductivity of Methane and Tetrafluoromethane in the Limit of Zero Density

An accurate representation of the thermal conductivity of methane and tetrafluoromethane in the limit of zero density valid for the temperature range 120–1000 K with a highest uncertainty of 4%. Also included is a temperature range of 280–750 K with a highest uncertainty of 5% for methane and tetrafluoromethane respectively. These theoretically based correlations are compared to bodies of data, collected mainly from the transient hot wire ...

The viscosity and thermal conductivity of ethane in the limit of zero density

New independent representations of the viscosity and thermal conductivity of ethane in the limit of zero density. For viscosity, the correlation is over the temperature range of 200 to 1000 K, with the highest uncertainty being 2.5% . The correlation for thermal conductivity covers from 225 to 725 K with a highest uncertainty of 3%....

The Apparent Thermal Conductivity of Liquids Containing Solid Particles of Nanometer Dimensions: A Critique

In the past twenty years, the behavior of the apparent thermal conductance of two or three phase systems comprised of solid particles with nanometer dimensions suspended in fluids, dubbed nanofluids, has been greatly contested in literature. After the study of the seven simplest nanofluids, Cu, CuO, Al2O3, and TiO2 suspended in water and ethylene glycol, ...

Thermal conductivity of four polyatomic gases

The transient hot wire method was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the following polyatomic gases: hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon monoxide and methane. The measurements occurred in the range from 0.8-10 MPa, at 35 degrees Celsius, and have an estimated uncertainty of ±0.2%....
