Nanofluid Natural Convection Heat Transfer

Abstract

Natural convection heat transfer is an important phenomenon in engineering and industry with widespread applications in diverse fields, such as geophysics, solar energy, electronic cooling, and nuclear energy. Nanofluid can be used to enhance rate of heat transfer. Two common methods can be used to simulate nanofluid flow and heat transfer: single-phase model and two-phase model. Influence of active parameters has been examined.
