Working fluid for a thermodynamic cycle.

  1. Dec 26, 2007 #1
    I am looking for a liquid with a high thermal expansion coefficient. This liquid should act as a working fluid in an thermodynamic cycle based on a system where the working fluid act in the same phase (liquid phase) throughout the cycle.

    So far I have found pentane as one of the most suitable fluids - but I would like to know if there are people with experience / knowledge that can help me in this case.

    For instance if there exist mixtures of different liquids with special properties that can be interesting?

    Thank you.

    Hey Geir,

    I am actually trying to find some info on the same type of fluid? Did you have any luck? what application were you using it for?

    Thank you
