Pages 1 - Abstract. The theory of nanofluids (NFs) was first suggested by Choi after performing experimental studies on various nanoparticle suspensions. NFs can be formed by dispersing metal or metallic oxide nanoparticles into selected base fluids, such as water, oils, ethylene, and glycol. Thermal conductivity, viscosity, specific heat, and density of the base fluid as its thermophysical properties can . About this book. Introduction to nanofluids--their properties, synthesis, characterization, and applications. Nanofluids are attracting a great deal of interest with their enormous potential to provide enhanced performance properties, particularly with respect to heat transfer. In response, this text takes you on a complete journey into the science and technology of . Nanofluids: Mathematical, Numerical and Experimental Analysis provides a combined treatment of the numerical and experimental aspects of this crucial topic. Nanofluids are solid-liquid composite material consisting of solid nanoparticles suspended in liquid with enhanced thermal properties. This book introduces basic fluid mechanics, conduction and convection in fluids, along with nanomaterials for nanofluids, property characterization, and outline applications of nanofluids in solar technology, machining and other special by: 3.
Book Description Nanofluids are solid-liquid composite material consisting of solid nanoparticles suspended in liquid with enhanced thermal properties. This book is the work of leading pioneers in the field, one of whom holds the first U.S. patent for nanofluids. They have combined their own first-hand knowledge with a thorough review of theliterature. Among the key topics are: * Synthesis of nanofluids, including dispersion techniques and characterization methods *. Because of their fascinating thermophysical properties and heat transfer performances, as well as enormous potential applications, nanofluids are considered the next generation heat transfer fluids. This book covers a wide range of topics from preparation methodology, properties, and theories to applications of nanofluids. The book includes numerous applications of nanofluids as different chapters which make it a good text book for engineers and researchers." ―Dr Mohsen Sharifpur, Nanofluids Research Laboratory, Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, University of Pretoria.
Nanofluids are colloidal suspension of ultra-fine metallic or nonmetallic particles in a given fluids. Despite all other properties, it is well known for its high thermal conductivity and better response as heat transfer medium. Nanofluids can be of two kinds such as metallic nanofluids and nonmetallic nanofluids. Book Description Nanofluids are gaining the attention of scientists and researchers around the world. This new category of heat transfer medium improves the thermal conductivity of fluid by suspending small solid particles within it and offers the possibility . Nanofluids are gaining the attention of scientists and researchers around the world. This new category of heat transfer medium improves the thermal conductivity of fluid by suspending small solid particles within it and offers the possibility of increased heat transfer in a variety of applications. Journal of Nanofluids(JON) is an international multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal covering a wide range of research topics in the field of nanofluids and fluid is an ideal and unique reference source for scientists and engineers working in this important and emerging research field of science, engineering and technology.
