Flow Characteristics of Cu-Water Nanofluid in Micro-Channels

  title={Flow Characteristics of Cu-Water Nanofluid in Micro-Channels},
  author={Fu Peng-fei},
In this paper,both numerical simulations and experimental study were performed on the flow characteristics of Cu-water nanofluid with 1% mass faction of Cu nano-particles in different micro-channels with diameters of 25 μm and 50 μm respectively and different lengths under the pressure-driven conditions.Two-step method was adopted to prepare the stable nanofluid.The results show that the mass flow of nanofluids is in linear relations with the pressure and increases with the increase of pressure… CONTINUE READING
