Chapter 4

Nanofluid Flow and Heat Transfer in the Presence of Thermal Radiation

Abstract

The thermal radiation has an important role in the overall surface heat transfer when the convection heat transfer coefficient is small. It is well known that the effect of thermal radiation is important in space technology and high temperature processes. Thermal radiation also plays an important role in controlling heat transfer process in polymer processing industry. In this chapter, nanofluid hydrothermal behavior in the presence of thermal radiation is investigated.
