Abstract
Heat transfer is a science that studies the energy transfer between two bodies due to temperature difference. In theory, thermal energy is related to the kinetics energy of molecules on a microscopic scale. When materialís temperature increases, the thermal agitation of its constituent molecules will increase. The performance of heat exchangers especially for single phase flows can be enhanced by many augmentation techniques. One of the most popular methods used is a passive heat transfer technique. Researchers have been quite active in the search of novel ways on heat transfer augmentation techniques using various types of passive techniques to increase heat transfer performances of heat exchanger. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations of heat transfer and friction factor analysis in a turbulent flow in triangular corrugated channels with Al2O3-water nanofluid is presented in this paper. Simulations are carried out at Reynolds number range of 10000-30000, with nanoparticle volume fractions 0-6% and constant heat flux condition.
