Effect of Nanostructure on Thermal Conductivity of Nanofluids

Figure 3

Effect of particle size of spherical particles on thermal conductivity of the solution at fixed volume fraction of and . (a), (b), and (c) refer to spherical particles with different sizes at fixed volume fraction; (d) is a dispersion of cubic particles with the same volume fraction. The dashed line is Maxwell’s theory for spheres.
