Abstract

In this article, convective heat transfer of Al2O3/water nanofluid was investigated using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). For this purpose the nanofluid was assumed as a single phase with temperature-dependent properties. The results of numerical modelling were evaluated by using experimental results. The results of both numerical and experimental investigations show that the convective heat transfer of base fluid (water) enhanced with increasing of Al2O3 nanoparticle concentration, fluid velocity and ethylene glycol concentration in the base fluid composition. Keywords: nanofluid, forced convective heat transfer, Al2O3 nanoparticle, single phase model, temperature-dependent properties.
