  • Introduction

    The current growth of nanosciences originates from the demonstration of the specific properties of nanoscale material. This has given rise to new fields of study in a large number of laboratories and has allowed the development of fluids with original properties called “nanofluids” composed of nanoparticles whose diameter is typically less than 100 nanometers suspended in a fluid called base fluid. The first work dealing with heat transfer in the presence of nanofluids practically began in 1995 in the Argonne National Laboratory with the study of Choi, which later allowed determining experimentally and numerically their thermo-physical properties. Nanofluids are used in several applications, for example: the cooling of electronic components, the industrial cooling, the heating of buildings and the reduction of pollution, the nuclear cooling system, energy storage, solar absorption, reduction of friction, magnetic sealing, antibacterial activity, intensification of micro-reactor... etc. Recently the application of nanofluids in the improvement of heat transfer has been developed and popularized with an exponential growth of publications that show that nanofluids offer an unbeatable heat transfer coefficient.
