About this book

This book covers synthesis, characterization, stability, heat transfer and applications of nanofluids. It includes different types of nanofluids, their preparation methods as well as its effects on the stability and thermophysical properties of nanofluids. It provides a discussion on the mechanism behind the change in the thermal properties of nanofluids and heat transfer behaviour. It presents the latest information and discussion on the preparation and advanced characterization of nanofluids. It also consists of stability analysis of nanofluids and discussion on why it is essential for the industrial application. The book provides a discussion on thermal boundary layer properties in convection. Future directions for heat transfer applications to make the production and application of nanofluids at industrial level are also discussed. 


About the authors

Aditya Kumar is Research Professional pursuing Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) focused on the characteristics of convection heat transfer in nanofluids at sustainable power and energy system lab, Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. He received his Master’s degree in Thermal Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee in 2015. He is Experienced Researcher with a demonstrated history of working in the area related to heat transfer application of nanofluids from the last 5+ years. He published and contributed in the several leading international peer-reviewed journals. He attended and presented papers in the several national and international conferences on the various topic related to nanofluids. Currently, he is working on the natural convection heat transfer by the magnetic nanofluids. He is also involved in designing and performing several experiments on the force as well as on natural convection small-scale experiments.

Sudhakar Subudhi is Associate Professor at the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. He received his Master’s and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, on the field of turbulent free convection in 2004 and 2009, respectively. He worked as  Scientist-SC and installed a “Temperature sensors calibration lab” at Indian Space Research Organization Satellite Center, Bangalore. He has worked as Assistant Professor and developed new course, titled “Experimental methods in fluid flow and heat transfer” in the year 2011 at NIT Calicut. Currently, he is working in various research areas in thermal engineering, e.g. solar-assisted cooling, thermal comfort, heat transfer by nanofluids, etc. He has authored a number of research articles published in the peer-reviewed international journals. He is Reviewer of numerous reputed journals such as Physics of Fluids (AIP), Renewable and Sustainable Energy (Elsevier), Applied Thermal Engineering (Elsevier), Experimental Heat Transfer (Taylor and Francis) and Heat and Mass Transfer (Springer). He delivered talks on the nanofluids applications at the several national and international conferences. He is working in the area related to thermal convection & nanofluids from the last 15+ years.
