Abstract

The problem of steady, laminar Marangoni convection boundary layer flow in nanofluids is studied using different types of nanoparticles. The general governing partial differential equations are transformed into a set of two nonlinear ordinary differential equations using unique similarity transformation. Numerical solutions of the similarity equations are obtained using the Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg method. Three different types of nanoparticles, namely Cu, Al2O3, and TiO2 are considered by using water as a base fluid with Prandtl number Pr = 6.2. It is found that nanoparticles with low thermal conductivity, TiO2, have better enhancement on heat transfer compared to Cu and Al2O3.
