Abstract

In this paper research has been carried out to determine the thermal performance of automobile radiator under real operating conditions using two different nanofluids and comparing the heat transfer capacity and flow rate of copper and titanium di oxide nanofluids in an automobile radiator. In this paper preparation of nanofluids by dispersing nanoparticles in the base fluid with 0.1% weight concentration. In this experimentation the test fluid flows through radiator consisting of 37 vertical tubes with elliptical cross section while air flows over the tubes with constant speed. The liquid in radiator flows in the range of 1-5 lpm to have Reynolds number in the range of 3000 to 20000. Results show heat transfer comparison and flow characteristics of the individual nanofluids.
