Fundamentals and Transport Properties of Nanofluids
Nanofluids are an emerging class of heat transfer fluids that are engineered by dispersing nanoparticles in conventional fluids. They represent a promising, multidisciplinary field that has evolved over the past two decades to provide enhanced thermal features, as well as manifold applications in thermal management, energy, transportation, MEMs and biomedical fields.
Fundamentals and Transport Properties of Nanofluids addresses a broad range of fundamental and applied research on nanofluids, from their preparation, stability, and thermal and rheological properties to performance characterization and advanced applications. It covers combined theoretical, experimental and numerical research to elucidate underlying mechanisms of thermal transport in nanofluids.
Edited and contributed to by leading academics in thermofluids and allied fields, this book is a must have for those working in chemical, materials and mechanical engineering, nanoscience, soft matter physics and chemistry.
