Innovative Design of a Thermal Battery: Influence of Carbon Nanotubes Concentration on Thermal Storage Characteristics
Abstract: Innovative design of a thermal battery resembling the solar thermal receiver is introduced. The fully connected aluminum meshes and the phase change material (NaCO3) with the presence of...
Enhanced mechanical, thermal and adhesion properties of polysilsesquioxane spheres reinforced epoxy nanocomposite adhesives
Epoxy-based systems serve as excellent adhesives to join a wide range of substrates such as metal, ceramics, plastics, etc. The mechanical properties of such systems can be improved considerably by...
Synergistic effect of graphene nanoplatelets and carbon black in multifunctional EPDM nanocomposites
Abstract: Ethylene–propylene–diene terpolymer rubber (EPDM)-based nanocomposites containing carbon black (CB), graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs), and mixtures of the two fillers were prepared. The...
Hybrid nanocellulose/carbon nanotube/natural rubber nanocomposites with a continuous three-dimensional conductive network
Abstract: In this study, the hybrid effect of nanocellulose/carbon nanotube (NCC/CNT) reinforcement on natural rubber (NR) nanocomposites was investigated. To this end, three series of NR...
Ice-Prevention and De-Icing Capacity of Epoxy Resin Filled with Hybrid Carbon-Nanostructured Forms: Self-Heating by Joule Effect
In this study, CNTs and graphite have been incorporated to provide electrical conductivity and self-heating capacity by Joule effect to an epoxy matrix. Additionally, both types of fillers, with...
Efficient Capture of Heavy Metal Ions and Arsenic with a CaY–Carbonate Layered Double-Hydroxide Nanosheet
Nanosheets consisting of two-dimensional (2-D) nanomaterials made up of Ca2+ (Ca), and Y3+ (Y) cations and carbonate [CO32–] anions in the interlayer with a uniform thickness and lengths of...
Enhanced thermally conductive and thermomechanical properties of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)/graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) nanocomposites for radiator of electronic components
In this work, multi-layer hot pressing (MLHP) method was used to prepare the graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) filled polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) composites. Effect of GNP content on the viscoelastic...
Stability and thermo-physical properties of green bio-glycol based TiO₂-SiO₂ nanofluids
The investigation on thermal properties of nanoparticles dispersed in the mixture of water and green Bio-glycol are limited in the literature and only available for single nanofluids. The purpose of...
Natural rubber nanocomposites: effect of carbon black/multi-walled carbon nanotubes hybrid fillers on the mechanical properties and thermal conductivity
This work presents the effect of carbon black (CB)/multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) hybridfiller system on the mechanical properties and thermal conductivity of natural rubber (NR) based...
