Project FRIENDSHIP: Publication on Nanofluids

FRIENDSHIP project is pleased to announce that our newest paper about nanofluids is now published online in the journal of Applied Thermal Engineering.

The paper, written by SINTEF Energy Research and CEA, is based on the research work on the use of nanofluids as heat-transfer fluids in solar collectors.

The article, A review of the use of nanofluids as heat-transfer fluids in parabolic-trough collectors, reviews the application of nanofluids to solar collectors, and parabolic-trough collectors in particular, at temperatures between 100 °C and 300 °C. Recent advances and research on nanofluids are presented, particularly the progress in understanding stability mechanisms, characterization, and preparation methods, as well as their thermophysical properties.

Congratulations to the authors!
