Nanofluids: Mathematical, Numerical and Experimental Analysis provides a unique combined treatment of the numerical and experimental aspects of this crucial topic. Mathematical methods such as the weighted residual method and perturbation techniques, as well as numerical methods such as Finite Element and Lattice-Boltzmann are addressed along with experimental methods in nanofluid analysis, helping readers to strengthen both sides of their research.The effects of magnetic field, electric field, and solar radiation on the optical properties and synthesis of nanofluid flow are examined and discussed as well. This book also functions as a comprehensive review of recent progress in nanofluids analysis and its application in different engineering sciences. For all readers in industry or academia, interested in nanofluids for theoretical or experimental design reasons, this is the perfect guide.

Key Features

  • Explains the governing equations in which magnetic or electric fields are applied
  • Gives instructions on how to confirm numerical modelling results by comparing with experimental outcomes
  • Provides detailed information on the governing equations in which nanofluid is used as a working fluid


MSc and PhD students, researchers and engineers in industry with backgrounds in mechanical, energy, and chemical engineering, and an interest in modelling of nanofluids and heat transfer
