In this work, stable homogeneous nanofluids were designed
as dispersions of sulfonic acid-functionalized graphene
nanoplatelets in an (ethylene glycol + water) mixture at
(10:90)% mass ratio and nanoparticle mass ...
The heat transfer performance of the conventional fluids
used in heat exchange processes improves by dispersing
nanoparticles with high thermal conductivity, as many
researches have shown in the last decades. The heat ...
One of the most restricting factors in the performance of
industrial heat transfer processes is the low thermal conductivity
of the thermal fluids commonly used. Hence, dispersions of
nanoparticles with high thermal ...
A new generation of heat transfer fluids, nanofluids, can
play a major role in the development of today’s renewable
energies. In the particular case of wind turbines, an undesirable
overheating of electrical and mechanical ...
