Chapter 6

Nanofluid Flow and Heat Transfer in the Presence of Constant Magnetic Field

Abstract

Natural convection under the influence of a magnetic field has great importance in many industrial applications such as crystal growth, metal casting, and liquid metal cooling blankets for fusion reactors. Existence of magnetic field has a noticeable effect on heat transfer reduction under natural convection, while in many engineering applications increasing heat transfer from solid surfaces is a goal. At this circumstance, the use of nanofluids with higher thermal conductivity can be considered as a promising solution. In this chapter, influence of Lorentz forces on hydrothermal behavior is studied.
