Thermal Conductivity of Nanofluids with the Transient Hot Wire


Nanofluids are popular due to their enhanced thermal properties as coolants when used in heat transfer equipment such as radiators, electronic cooling systems, or heat exchangers. Our in-house expert will briefly compare thermal conductivity methods for testing liquids and the advantages of testing liquids with the THW-L2. Transient Hot-Wire (THW) is the primary method for the measurement of thermal conductivity of fluids, nanofluids and pastes because of the wide range of applications, its high accuracy and repeatability.

About the Speaker

Dr. Sofia Mylona is an internationally recognized expert in the area of the thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Hot-Wire (THW) method. She 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 6 years, Dr Mylona’s research is focused on the thermal conductivity measurements using the Transient Hot-Wire technique.
