Abstract Simulation is conducted to investigate the forced convection flow of Al 2 O 3 /water nanofluid in a radial flow cooling system using a single phase approach. Computations are validated with experimental data available in the literature. Results show the same trend as revealed in some of the published works that the Nusselt number increases with the increase of Reynolds number and nanoparticle volume fraction, though the increase in pressure drop is more significant with the increase of… CONTINUE READING
