|Title:||Experimental study of heat transfer augmentation in non-circular duct using combined nanofluids and vortex generator||Authors:||Ahmed, H.E.
|Issue Date:||2015||Abstract:||This study presents the effect of nanofluid and vortex generators compound on heat transfer and friction factor in an equilateral triangular duct experimentally. Two different types of nanofluids namely, Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> and SiO<inf>2</inf> nanoparticles suspended in distilled water (DW) with two particle concentrations were successfully prepared and tested. A wide range of Reynolds number was covered from 500 to 8000, approximately. The results of smooth triangular duct using water as a working fluid were validated with literatures and a good agreement was obtained. The present results show a good enhancement in heat transfer by using vortex generator with base fluid while a significant enhancement was registered by using the compound of vortex generator and nanofluids accomplished with a moderate increase in the friction factor. The maximum enhancement in the Nusselt number obtained in this study is 44.64% and 41.82% at 1 vol.% and Re ≈ 4000 for SiO<inf>2</inf>-DW and Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>-DW nanofluid, respectively. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.
