Nanofluid, Radiator, Aluminium Oxide


Water and ethylene glycol as conventional coolants have been widely used in an automotive car radiator for many years. These heat transfer fluids offer low thermal conductivity. With the advancement of nanotechnology, the new generation of heat transfer fluids called, “Nano fluids” have been developed and researchers found that these fluids offer higher thermal conductivity compared to that of conventional coolants. In This paper affectivity of use of Nano-fluid Al2O3, to study the performance of radiator using conventional coolant and Aluminum Oxide blended coolant and different parameters are studied Heat rejection performance measurement with conventional coolant, Heat rejection performance measurement with Nano-fluid coolant & Comparison of Nano-fluid coolant results with conventional coolant results are also studied.
