The influence of different types of nanofluid on thermal and fluid flow performance of liquid cold plate

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The influence of utilizing different nanofluids types on the liquid cold plate (LCP) is numerically investigated. The thermal and fluid flow performance of LCP is examined by using pure ethylene glycol (EG), Al 2 O 3 -EG and CuO-EG. The volume fraction of the nanoparticle for both nanofluid is 2%. The finite volume method (FVM) has been used to solved 3-D steady state, laminar flow and heat transfer governing equations. The presented results indicate that Al 2 O 3 -EG able to provide the lowest surface temperature of the heater block followed by CuO-EG and EG, respectively. It is also found that the pressure drop and friction factor are higher for Al 2 O 3 -EG and CuO-EG compared to the pure EG.
