Heat Transfer, Al2O3, Engine Coolant


A mixture of nano-sized particles in a base liquid called nanofluid, which is the new generation of heat transfer fluid for various heat transfer applications where transport characteristics are substantially higher than the base liquid. In the present study, the effects due to temperature and concentration on thermo physical properties (thermal conductivity, viscosity, density) for Al2O3/water/ethylene glycol based nanofluids are experimentally investigated. The volume fractions of nanoparticles used were 0.005%. The present work focuses on Heat Transfer Coefficient of Nanofluid. This however, has not been addressed properly so far. Results show that coefficient of heat transfer increases with increase in Flow rate as well as Heat Transfer (Q).
