Nano-fluid Convective Heat Transfer Determination

With the rapid development of many new nano-fluids formulations the need to quickly and inexpensively evaluate their fluid thermal effectiveness of these formulation is available. A dedicated flow system with temperature and flow control was instrumented to determine thermal performance of nano-fluids

ESI previously evaluated the thermal effectiveness of a nano-fluid formulation by comparing the convective heat transfer coefficient (h) to that of Ethylene Glycol and water. Tests showed that the formulation being evaluated had a hN < hEG (Ethylene Glycol), and similar to water.
