Viscosity and Rheological Properties of Graphene Nanopowders Nanofluids


The dynamic viscosity and rheological properties of two different non-aqueous graphene nano-plates-based nanofluids are experimentally investigated in this paper, focusing on the effects of solid volume fraction and shear rate. For each nanofluid, four solid volume fractions have been considered ranging from 0.1% to 1%. The rheological characterization of the suspensions was performed at 20°C, with shear rates ranging from 10⁻¹ s⁻¹ to 10³s⁻¹, using a cone-plate rheometer. The Carreau–Yasuda model has been successfully applied to fit most of the rheological measurements. Although it is very common to observe an increase of the viscosity with the solid volume fraction, we still found here that the addition of nanoparticles produces lubrication effects in some cases. Such a result could be very helpful in the domain of heat extraction applications. The dependence of dynamic viscosity with graphene volume fraction was analyzed using the model of Vallejo et al.
