Abstract The nanoparticles of ZnO have been dispersed in base fluid of poly(ethylene glycol), PEG. Stability of this nanofluid has been verified with UV–vis spectroscopy. Dynamic light scattering was used to obtain particle size of investigated nanofluid. Rheological behavior of this nanofluid has been investigated over a range of volumetric solid concentrations ( ϕ 1  = 0.41–4.71%) and shear rates ( γ  = 0.01–1000 s −1 ) at 298.15 K. The nanoparticle suspensions generally exhibited a… CONTINUE READING
