Thermophysical Properties of Nanofluids



Tekin, Bilgehan; Yazicioglu, Almila G. (2016-07-14)
Nanofluids are a class of fluids with nanoparticles suspended in a base fluid. The aim for using nanofluids is often to improve the thermophysical properties of the base fluid so as to enhance the energy transfer efficiency. As the technology develops; the size of devices and systems needs to get smaller to fulfill the engineering requirements and/or to be leading among competitors. The use of nanofluids in heat transfer applications seems to be a viable solution to current heat transfer problems, albeit wi...
Thermodynamic functions for diatomic molecules with modified Kratzer plus screened Coulomb potential
Okorie, U. S.; Edet, C. O.; Ikot, A. N.; Rampho, G. J.; Sever, Ramazan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-01-02)
We have solved the Schrodinger equation with the modified Kratzer plus screened Coulomb potential using the modified factorization method. We have also employed both the Greene-Aldrich approximation scheme and a suitable transformation scheme to obtain the energy eigenvalues equation and its corresponding energy eigenfunctions for CO, NO, and N-2 diatomic molecules. Numerical results of the energy eigenvalues for the selected diatomic molecules have been computed and discussed. The effects of the combined p...
Thermodynamic analysis of plasma-assisted reforming of methane
Maşera, Kemal; Taylan, Onur; Sustainable Environment and Energy Systems (2016-6)
Conventional techniques of syngas production use the exhaust gas of combustion of fossil fuels or feedstock like biomass itself. High temperatures are required for this process. To achieve necessary high temperatures, about 30% of feedstock is used initially. Another disadvantage of these conventional techniques is the tar formation which can damage the system by blocking the equipment. On the other hand, plasma processes are more efficient techniques to convert energy like solar, electrical, etc. int...

Thermomagnetic effects of nondegenerate Kane semiconductors under the conditions of mutual electron-phonon drag in high electric and arbitrary magnetic fields
Babaev, MM; Gassym, TM; Tas, M; Tomak, Mehmet (IOP Publishing, 2005-06-01)
The thermopower and Nemst-Ettingshausen (NE) effect of nondegencrate Kane semiconductors are investigated by taking into account the electron and phonon heating and their arbitrary mutual drag. The electron spectrum is taken in the Kane two-band form. The electric and magnetic field dependences of the electronic and phonon parts of the thermoelectric and NE coefficients and voltages are obtained in analytical forms. It is shown that the mutual drag of electrons and phonons and degree of nonparabolicity of t...
