Original Press Release

ASTM International Compilation on Nanofluids Now Available

Press release date: January 22, 2013

W. CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. —A new ASTM International compilation, STP 1567, Nanofluids, features 11 peer-reviewed papers that focus on the properties of nanofluid technology, including heat transfer/thermal transport, composition, applications, preparation and characterization.

Nanofluids have extensive applications as coolants in the electronic, nuclear and heat treatment industry. They also enhance the lubricating properties of oils and reduce emissions in automobiles. Topics covered include:
• Optimum CNT concentration and bath temperature for maximum heat transfer rate during quenching in CNT nanofluids;
• Copper oxide nanofluid with water in electronic cooling;
• Nanofluid boiling, flow visualization, critical heat flux enhancement and transient characteristics;
• Surfactant coated Ce-Zr nanoparticles/nanofuel and reduction of emission in a diesel engine using nanofuel; and
• Addition of aluminum nanoparticles on cooling performance and quench severity of water during immersion quenching.

STP 1567, Nanofluids, is available for $55 USD in print (196 pages; 6” x 9” soft cover; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7555-6; Stock #: STP1567) or as an e-book (ISBN: 978-0-8031-7560-0; Stock #: STP1567-EB).
