Abstract:A number of new alternative refrigerants have been proposed in the past several years to replace the existing refrigerants used in air-conditioning equipment. In order to study these refrigerants extensively an in-depth knowledge of their single-phase heat transfer characteristics and thermodynamic properties is needed. This paper provides a literature review of current research that has been conducted on single phase flow for alternative refrigerants, addresses a number of relations for determining the thermodynamic properties of these alternative refrigerants; and discusses their sensitivity to uncertainty. Finally, an overview of some of the current research that has been conducted on various enhancements and refrigerant / oil mixtures is provided as well.
