Measuring the Thermal Conductivity of Nanofluids and Nanolubricants using the THW Technique


In applications such as heat transfer, thermal management, etc. nanofluids and nanolubricants aid in reducing friction while also improving functionality and efficiency. Dr. Sofia Mylona an internationally recognized expert in the area of thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Hot-Wire method dives deeper into the subject of measuring the thermal conductivity of nanofluids and nanolubricants using the THW technique.

About the Speaker

Dr. Sofia Mylona is a graduate Chemist from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (A.U.Th.) in Greece and holds a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering in the same university. During her Ph.D., she designed and constructed a novel Vibrating-Wire Viscometer for measuring high-viscosity liquids for which she received the 1st Metrology award in Greece. In the last 7 years, Dr. Mylona’s research is focused on thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Hot-Wire technique.
