Abstract

The steady flow over a static plate immersed in three different nanofluids (CuO-water, Al2O3-water, TiO2-water) with the bottom surface of the plate is heated by convection is investigated numerically. Similarity solutions for the flow and thermal fields are possible if the convective heat transfer from the hot fluid on the lower surface of the plate varies like x-1/2, where x is the distance from the leading edge. The governing partial differential equations are first transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations, before being solved numerically. The results indicate that the inclusion of nanoparticles into the base fluid produces an increase in the skin friction coefficient and the heat transfer rate at the surface. The rate of heat transfer in the Al2O3-water nanofluid is found to be higher than the rate of heat transfer in the CuO-water and TiO2-water nanofluids.
