Paper Title:
Effect of Nanoparticle Concentration on Thermo-Hydraulic Behavior of a Nanofluid in a Horizontal Tube with Constant Heat Flux and Mass Flow Rate
  Abstract

How nanoparticle concentration affects on thermal and hydrodynamic parameters of a nanofluid (water+Al2O3) is numerically investigated in a horizontal tube while these parameters are impressed by buoyancy force under constant heat flux and mass flow rate. Comparisons with previously published experimental and numerical works on mixed convection in horizontal tubes show good agreements between the results. Results which are obtained using the two – phase mixture model indicate that adding the nanoparticles causes changes in the properties of nanofluid and finally increases the temperature of the flow. Whereas, dimensionless pressure drop along the tube length could increase with the nanoparticle concentration.
