Effect of Nanostructure on Thermal Conductivity of Nanofluids

Figure 5

Thermal conductivity of suspensions of rods with aspect ratios in the range of to and, therefore, shape factors between and in comparison to Maxwell’s limiting bounds (dashed lines) at volume fractions of and . The inset graph shows the comparison between these simulated values (point) and Hamilton’s model (line).
