About this Research Topic
Nanofluids, as an advanced thermal transport medium, have been extensively proven to have better conventional thermal transport media. This is due to their enhanced thermophysical and convective properties. Although a lot of research has been done in this area in recent years, there is still a lack of knowledge in several aspects of this new field. The application of diverse mono and hybrid nanofluids in various thermal systems needs to be examined to find the best solution for improving the efficiency of different thermal systems.
The goal of this Research Topic is to publish a wide range of papers related to nanofluids as heat transfer fluids with special consideration to enhancement of heat transfer and improvements to thermal efficiency of thermal systems, directly or indirectly (filling the gap of knowledge about advanced thermo-physical properties). This Research Topic will be a useful resource for the researchers involved in heat transfer engineering and energy efficiency.
The scope of the Research Topic includes, but is not limited to:
· Enhancing the efficiency of different thermal systems (heat exchangers, solar-thermal, refrigeration systems, nuclear-thermal, automotive etc.) by using nanofluids.
· Investigation on advanced preparation of nanofluids to be stable for heat transfer applications.
· Introducing new nanofluids for heat transfer applications.
· Developing new mathematical modeling for nanofluids.
· Introducing new ways to calculate efficiency of nanofluids for thermal systems.
· Filling the gap of knowledge about the properties of nanofluid to be used in enhancing heat transfer.
Researchers are welcome to submit Original Research and Review articles. Please note that abstract submission is not mandatory, it is permitted to submit a manuscript directly without submitting an abstract.
