Performance Testing the Thermal Conductivity of Next-Generation Nanofluids

Nanofluids are colloidal suspensions of nanoparticles in a base fluid. Nanoparticles are traditionally metals, oxides, carbides, graphene or graphite nanoplatelets or carbon nanotubes, and are typically added to improve the heat-transfer properties of cooling fluids by improving the thermal conductivity and convective heat transfer coefficient of the fluid. More recently, non-traditional nanofluid additives have been explored, including phase change materials (PCMs). In this webinar, we explore the performance testing of phase changing nanofluids, micelles-in-water nanofluids, and propylene glycol nanofluids. Recent published works in the International Journal of Thermal Sciences and the International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer will be presented based on work from C-Therm clients at Aalto University, Brown University and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
