This paper reports an experimental study on the natural convective heat transfer of nanofluids, an area in which little work has been carried out in the past. Aqueous-based titanium-dioxide nanofluids of various concentrations are formulated by using the two-step method and a high shear homogenizer is used to break large aggregates. Instead of the use of dispersant and/or surfactant, the electrostatic repulsion mechanism is adopted to stabilize nanoparticles. The resulting nanofluids are found… CONTINUE READING
