Heat storage modules based on innovative polymer heat exchangers encompassing salt hydrates, (2016-2016) - Responsabile Scientifico

Ricerca da Enti privati e Fondazioni (non commerciale). Progetti di Ricerca su Fondi Strutturali e Nazionali

Abstract

The present project aims at using devices (low cost, low weight, high corrosion resistance) to encompass Thermal Storage Materials (TSM) based on salt hydrates with extreme energy storage density (owing to their higher thermal conductivities and latent heat values of up to above 2000 kJ/kg) for the below final overall goals:- Improvement of vehicles re-start efficiency after prolonged stops both in term of reduced fuel consumption and reduced cold-start emissions (engine oil and coolant pre-heating, catalytic converters pre-heating by a pre-heated air flow air). Such technologies are eligible as Eco Innovation in EU and Off Cycle credits in US- Achievement of a low-energy remote-controlled/programmable pre-warming of vehicle cockpit before the passengers’ arrival so to enable the elimination of equivalent energy demanding devices (e.g. PTC heaters).

Ricerca UE (non commerciale). Progetti di Ricerca Europei

Abstract

This proposal addresses the design, manufacturing and control of interfaces in thermally conductive polymer/graphene nanocomposites. In particular, the strong reduction of thermal resistance associated to the contacts between conductive particles in a percolating network throughout the polymer matrix is targeted, to overcome the present bottleneck for heat transfer in nanocomposites.The project includes the investigation of novel chemical modifications of nanoparticles to behave as thermal bridges between adjacent particles, advanced characterization methods for particle/particle interfaces and controlled processing methods for the preparations of nanocomposites with superior thermal conductivity.The results of this project will contribute to the fundamental understanding of heat transfer in complex solids, while success in mastering interfacial properties would open the way to a new generation of advanced materials coupling high thermal conductivity with low density, ease of processing, toughness and corrosion resistance.
