Researchers from Tsinghua University and Brown University (Providence, RI) have discovered a simple way to give a major boost to turbulent heat exchange, a method of heat transport widely used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The additives create bubbles, removing heat. Image courtesy of Brown University. In a paper published in Nature Communications, the researchers show that adding a readily available organic solvent to common water-based turbulent heat… Read More
