The Heat transfer characteristics of Alumina/water nanofluid in a STHE with the aid of coil insert is being studied. Investigations were made on the effects of Peclet number and the effect of the Alumina/water nanofluid concentration on the heat transfer and pumping power characteristics. An increase in the volume concentration of the nanoparticles in the base fluid caused a significant enhancement in the overall heat transfer characteristics compared to that of water. When a wire coil insert… CONTINUE READING
