Nanofluid flow and heat transfer of carbon nanotube and graphene platelette nanofluids in entrance region of microchannels

M.E. Fuller & J.T.C. Liu
Suspensions of nano-scale particles in liquids, dubbed nanofluids, are of great interest for heat transfer applications. Nanofluids potentially offer superior thermal conductivity to alternative, pure fluids and are of particular interest in applications where active cooling of power-dense systems is required. In this work, the thermophysical properties of carbon nanotube nanofluids (CNTNf) and those of graphene nanoplatelette nanofluids (GNPNf) as functions of particle volume fraction are deduced from published experiments. These properties are applied to...
