Abstract:   (370 Views)
 Heat transfer has an effective role in industrial and engineering applications. In this study, the effect of Al2O3 nanoparticles on laminar forced convection heat transfer flow in a tube is studied. Governing Equations are discretized using the finite difference method on a staggered grid. Nanofluid flow is simulated using single-phase and mixture models. Simulation results show that the average Nusselt Number increases with an increase in the Reynolds Number. Also, by increasing the volume fraction, the average Nusselt number and consequently the heat transfer rate increases. The results of the mixture model are in better agreement with experimental results than the single-phase model.
