Abstract

Numerical simulation and experimental investigation were used for study of laminar forced convective heat transfer of Al2O3/water nanofluid. Single phase model ivith temperature- dependent properties was employed for numerical simulation of transport phenomena in nanofluid. The results cf experiments and computer-aided simulation indicated remarkable enhancement of convective heat transfer of base fluid, by adding small amounts of AI2O3 nanoparticles. The convective heat transfer in nanofluid enhanced with increasing of nanoparticle concentration and flow Reynolds number. Increasing of ethylene glycol in the base fluid composition resulted in decreasing of heat transfer coefficient.
