Preparation, Characterization, Properties and Application of Nanofluid begins with an introduction of colloidal systems and their relation to nanofluid. Special emphasis on the preparation of stable nanofluid and the impact of ultrasonication power on nanofluid preparation is also included, as are characterization and stability measurement techniques. Other topics of note in the book include the thermophysical properties of nanofluids as thermal conductivity, viscosity, and density and specific heat, including the figure of merit of properties. In addition, different parameters, like particle type, size, concentration, liquid type and temperature are discussed based on experimental results, along with a variety of other important topics.
The available model and correlations used for nanofluid property calculation are also included.
- Provides readers with tactics on nanofluid preparation methods, including how to improve their stability
- Explores the effect of preparation method and stability on thermophysical and rheological properties of nanofluids
- Assesses the available model and correlations used for nanofluid property calculation
