Modeling of heat transfer performance of carbon nanotube nanofluid in a tube with fixed wall temperature by using ANN–GA

Modeling of heat transfer performance of carbon nanotube nanofluid in a tube with fixed wall... In this research, the heat transfer performance of carbon nanotube (CNT)/water nanofluid in a horizontal tube with a fixed wall temperature with a turbulent regime flow condition is experimentally analyzed. The heat transfer performance is monitored through an evaluation of the heat transfer coefficient and friction factor.

Abstract

In this research, the heat transfer performance of carbon nanotube (CNT)/water nanofluid in a horizontal tube with a fixed wall temperature with a turbulent regime flow condition is experimentally analyzed. The heat transfer performance is monitored through an evaluation of the heat transfer coefficient and friction factor. To perform this investigation, the affecting performance variables of nanofluid such as volume concentration, twist ratio, and Reynolds number are defined and considered within certain ranges of 0.2–1.2%, 2–8, and 4000–20,000, respectively. It is monitored that insertion of nanoparticles of CNT increases the heat transfer coefficient in comparison with the water and its value is also boosted in higher concentrations and Reynolds number. It is found that simultaneous utilization of nanofluids and twisted tape influences the heat transfer more efficient than employing either nanofluid or twisted tape, individually. In overall, under the designed circumstances, the highest thermal performance factor is obtained at CNT concentration of 1.2% and twist ratio of 2.
