Abstract

The thermal conductivity of nanofluids has been studied experimentally using the transient hot-wire method, and it is shown that a significant increase can be obtained. Existing methods for the prediction and correlation of the thermal conductivity are discussed. It is shown that a lot of work still needs to be done in this area.
