Flow characteristics of aluminium oxide nanofluids

Abstract:

The current study is an investigation in the flow characteristics of aluminium oxide nanofluids. Relative viscosity measurements are obtained for varying volume fractions using both a rotational viscometer and an experimental setup designed for pressure drop measurements in tubes. The effect of nanoparticle size and preparation method is also investigated as predispersed nanofluids of nominal particle size 10nm and 50nm are compared with each other and with a fluid mixed from Al2O3 nanopowder...
