M. Monjurul Ehsan, Shafi Noor, Sayedus Salehin and A.K.M. Sadrul Islam,    Department of Mechanical & Chemical Engineering, Islamic University of Technology, Board Bazar, Gazipur, Dhaka, Bangladesh

Nanotechnology is a promising field in sustainable energy to reduce the energy consumption for optimum design of heat exchangers. Nanofluid provides significant improvement of thermo-physical properties and augmentation of heat transfer coefficients as well as reduces the pumping power if properly selected. In this chapter a CFD simulation using a finite volume method is presented for investigation of the hydrodynamic and thermal behavior of nanofluid flowing through a circular ...
