Pages 527-529 (3)
Abstract:
We present the experimental evidence of substantial increases in fluid thermal conductivity (up to 139%) by adding some fluids even with lower conductivity. This leads to a new type of thermal-wave fluids that could serve as heat transfer fluid of the future much better than recently-proposed nanofluids.
Keywords:
Thermal-wave fluids, nanofluids, thermal waves, thermal conductivity, oil/water emulsion
