Nanofluid Forced Convection Heat Transfer

Abstract

Forced convection is a mechanism or a type of transport in which fluid motion is generated by an external source (such as a pump, fan, suction device, etc.). It should be considered as one of the main methods of useful heat transfer, as significant amounts of heat energy can be transported very efficiently. Nanofluid can be used as a working fluid to the improve rate of heat transfer. In this chapter, some applications of nanofluid forced convective heat transfer are presented.
