Rheological and Thermal Transport Characteristics of a Transformer Oil Based Ferrofluid

This article studied the flow and thermal transport characteristics of a ferrofluid based on transformer oil (Mogul Trafo CZ-A) and iron oxide nanoparticles. The thermal conductivity, specific heat, and thermal diffusivity were calculated using the transient plane source (TPS) method and a thermal constants analyzer was used for performing the measurements. It was found that the presence of the magnetic nanoparticles in the transformer oil (3%) increased its thermal conductivity by ...

Properties of form-stable paraffin/silicon dioxide/expanded graphite phase change composites prepared by sol-gel method

In this article, researchers used the sol-gel method to create a thermally conductive phase change material (PCM), paraffin/silicon dioxide (SiO2)/expanded graphite (EG) composite. This PCM is composed of a supporting material, silica gel, and a thermally conductive material, expanded graphite. Thermal properties, such as conductivity and diffusivity were determined experimentally, and a differential scanning calorimeter was used to characterize the melting temperature and latent heat of the PCM. ...
