Relationships between properties of nanofluid
(nf) to those of base fluid (bf) and pure solid (s) are given with the following empirical models [10, 11]:
Electrical Conductivity Measurements of Nanofluids
and Development of New Correlations.
The steady-state two-dimensional laminar boundary layer flow over a continuously moving flat horizontal plate embedded in a water-based nanofluid
Thermo-physical properties of nanofluid
In the present study HAM method is applied to obtain an explicit analytic solution of nanofluid
over a flat plate (Fig.
The total entropy generation minimization of nanofluid
magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) flow through a two parallel isothermal plate's channel with thermal radiation flux included is considered.
Modeling of nanoparticles' aggregation and sedimentation in nanofluid
Experiments on the thermal conductivity of nanofluids
show that a nanofluid
has a much higher thermal conductivity than a pure host fluid (Choi 1995; Eastman et al.
While we know Flotek's Complex nano-Fluid chemistries have been successful in enhancing production in tight resource formations, we believe a more complete understanding of the interaction between our chemistries and geologic formations as well as a more precise comprehension of the physical properties and impact of our nanofluids
in the completion process will significantly enhance the efficacy of the unconventional hydrocarbon completion process.
On the other hand, even less research work have been conducted if the rheological behaviour of nanofluid
is more complex (i.
13] studied the effect of natural convection of nanofluid
in an enclosure due to uncertainties in viscosity and thermal conductivity.
Simple Nanotechnology Experiments' was the title of another section of the exhibition in which the students observed the synthesis stages of iron oxide nanoparticles and the production of magnetic nanofluid
, a term coined by Choi (1) in 1995 is a new class of heat transfer fluids which is developed by suspending nanoparticles with the main goal to achieve the highest possible thermal properties at the smallest possible volume concentrations by uniform dispersion and stable suspension of nanoparticles in host fluids.
was then poured into a solvent tank, and the prepared stainless steel base plate was submerged in the tank for 5-10 min to allow the suspended [TiO.
