Abstract
The development of Nanotechnology has witnessed an emergence of new generation of heat transfer fluids known as Nano fluids. Nano fluids are used as coolants which provide excellent thermal performance in the device called heat exchangers. However, the viscosity of these fluids increases with the addition of nanoparticles. Furthermore, Various Nano fluids are potential working fluids for heat transfer applications, according to the studies, using Nano fluids increase the thermal conductivity and conductive heat transfer coefficients compare to the base fluids. In heat exchangers, due to the high thermal performance of Nano fluids than Base fluids, it can be used in various processes of cooling and heating. In this project we are introducing the nanofluids like alluminium oxide in the shell and tube heat exchanger and we are comparing the base fluids and nano fluids by using them in heat exchanger. By using Flow simulation, we are going to prove that which is enhancing the heat transfer rate and improving the effectiveness of heat exchanger.
