The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "In this study, the LHP performance using silica (SiO2-H2O) nanofluid with particle volume fraction of 3% which was used as a coolant is examined. The experimental results are verified by simulation using Finite Element Method (FEM). The LHP performance is evaluated in terms of transient temperature distribution and total thermal resistance (Re). Re is estimated for both LHP using SiO2-H2O nanofluid and pure water cases under a steady state condition. The results reveal the average decrease of 28%-44% at heat input ranging from 20 W to 100 W in total thermal resistance of LHP using SiO2-H2O nanofluid as compared with pure water. Therefore, the presence of nanoparticles could greatly enhance the cooling of LHP."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The experimental and simulation results are found in good agreement."
