Abstract

Limited energy resources require innovative technologies to save, transfer, and store thermal energy. Nanofluids – suspensions with nanoparticles of size 20 nm to 200 nm – might be one such technology. This study presents and analyses the experimental results of three detailed investigations of thermosyphons operated with titania and gold nanofluids. Keywords: nanofluids, experiment, thermosyphon, thermal resistance.
