Abstract A nanofluid, which is an aqueous fluid with nanoparticles, is an attractive medium for enhancing critical heat flux (CHF); however, its instability over a long period of time due to sedimentation and aggregation has impeded its successful application in industry. In this study, lightweight negatively charged TEMPO-oxidized cellulose nanofibers (CNFs) were utilized as a nano-sized substance in water and examined to enhance both the CHF performance and thermal stability of nanofluids. Owing to low density of the CNFs and long range repulsion between negatively charged CNFs, there were no aggregation and sedimentation of CNFs with multiple boiling/cooling cycles. In addition, with CNF concentrations of 0.01, 0.03, 0.05, and 0.10 wt%, CHF enhancement increases of 40.7%, 45.1%, 54.9%, and 69.4%, respectively, were achieved over that of pure water. The present results demonstrated the great potential of CNFs as eco-friendly and cost-effective nano-substances that can overcome the instability of nanofluids.

Abstract Experiments were performed to investigate bubble behaviors and pool boiling Critical Heat Flux (CHF) on a thin flat rectangular copper heater fabricated on Printed Circuit Board (PCB), at various inclination angles. The surface inclination angles were 0°, 45°, 90°, 135°, and 180°. Results showed the Onset of Nucleate Boiling (ONB) heat flux increased with increasing heater orientation from 0° to 90°, while early ONB occurred when the heater faced downwards (135° and 180°). The nucleate ...

Abstract A new model, based on the experimental observation reported in the literature that CHF is triggered by the Irreversible Hot Spots (IHS), has been developed to predict the Critical Heat Flux (CHF) in pool boiling. The developed Irreversible Hot Spot (IHS) model can predict the CHF when boiling methanol on small flat surfaces and long horizontal cylinders of different sizes to within 5% uncertainty. It can also predict the effect of changing wettability (i.e. contact angle) on CHF to with...
In this work, reduced graphene oxide (rGO) is synthesized from graphite powder and various characterization techniques have been used to study the in-plane crystallite size, number of layers, presence of functional groups and surface morphology. The rGO flakes are dispersed in Millipore water to obtain 0.0005, 0.001, and 0.002 wt.% of rGO-water nanofluids. It is then used in the experimental facility to study the nucleate boiling heat transfer with different heating surfaces viz. smooth and sand...

Abstract In the present work, the pool boiling critical heat flux, transient heat transfer characteristics, and bonding strength of thin Ni-Cr wire with aqua based reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanofluids are experimentally studied. Results indicate: (i) the critical heat flux (CHF) of 0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3 g·L− 1 concentrations of rGO-water nanofluids varies from 1.42 to 2.40 MW·m− 2; (ii) the CHF remains same for the tested samples during transient heat transfer studies and (iii) a cons...

Nearly a century of research on enhancing critical heat flux (CHF) has focused on altering the boiling surface properties such as its nucleation site density, wettability, wickability and heat transfer area. But, a mechanism to manipulate dynamics of the vapor and liquid interactions above the boiling surface as a means of enhancing CHF has not been proposed. Here, a new approach is implemented to limit the vapor phase lateral expansion over the heat transfer surface and actively control the sur...

In the present study, reduced graphene oxide (rGO) is synthesized from graphite using modified Hummer and chemical reduction methods. Various characterizations techniques are carried out to study the in-plane crystallite size, number of layers, presence of functional groups and surface morphology. Different concentrations of 0.01, 0.1, and 0.3 g/l of rGO/water nanofluids are prepared by dispersing the flakes in DI water. The colloidal stability of 0.3 g/l concentration is measured after 5 days u...

Abstract Adequate characterization of NPs (nanoparticles) is of paramount importance to develop well defined nanoformulations of therapeutic relevance. Determination of particle size and surface charge of NPs are indispensable for proper characterization of NPs. DLS (dynamic light scattering) and ZP (zeta potential) measurements have gained popularity as simple, easy and reproducible tools to ascertain particle size and surface charge. Unfortunately, on practical grounds plenty of challenges exi...

An exceptionally low interfacial tension of a dense fluid of concentrated polyelectrolyte complexes, phase-separated from a biphasic fluid known as complex coacervates, represents a unique and highly sought-after materials property that inspires novel applications from superior coating to wet adhesion. Despite extensive studies and broad interest, the molecular and structural bases for the unique properties of complex coacervates are unclear. Here, a microphase-separated complex coacervate fluid...

Abstract null null In the nuclear power plants, external reactor vessel cooling (ERVC) by water is an effective strategy to ensure in-vessel retention (IVR) of the molten fuel in the pressurized water-cooled reactors (PWRs) to avoid the release of nuclear fission products under severe accidents. The effectiveness of IVR - ERVC, namely the heat taken away by the ERVC highly depends on the critical heat flux (CHF) of the outer wall of lower hemisphere the Reactor Vessel. Although porous coating ha...

Abstract Microbial biotransformation of CH4 gas has been attractive for the production of energy and high-value chemicals. However, insufficient supply of CH4 in a culture medium needs to be overcome for the efficient utilization of CH4. Here, we utilized cellulose nanocrystals coated with a tannic acid-Fe3+ complex (TA-Fe3+CNCs) as a medium component to enhance the gas-liquid mass-transfer performance. TA-Fe3+CNCs were well suspended in water without agglomeration, stabilized gas bubbles withou...
