Nanofluids have shown great promise in the design of heat transfer equipment. In this study, the viscosity of γ-Al2O3 glycerol nanofluids was investigated in the Einstein's volume concentration regime (≤2%). The effect of temperature, volume concentration, electrical conductivity, and pH was investigated at a constant shear rate. The nanoparticles were 20–30 nm. γ-Al2O3 glycerol nanofluids samples were prepared, followed by ultrasonication at two different time period of 3 and 6 h. The effects… CONTINUE READING
