Nanofluids: Synthesis, Properties and Applications $170.00
Editors: S.M. Sohel Murshed and C.A. Nieto de Castro (University of Lisbon, Portugal)
Book Description:
As an emerging research field, nanofluids have sparked immense interest from researchers around the world and have been a subject of intensive research in recent years. Because of their fascinating thermophysical properties and heat transfer performances, as well as enormous potential applications, nanofluids are considered the next generation heat transfer fluids. This book covers a wide range of topics from preparation methodology, properties, and theories to applications of nanofluids. In addition to the state-of-the-art reviews and analysis on the key areas of nanofluids including thermophysical and heat transfer properties of carbon nanotube and magnetic nanofluids, viscosity of metal oxide nanofluids and pool boiling of nanofluids, this book presents extensive experimental and theoretical research efforts on thermal conductivity, viscosity, convective heat transfer, capillary wetting, and transport properties of nanofluids. Studies on the application of nanofluids in droplet-based microfluidic technology are presented. Another new area of nanofluid-based optical engineering is explored in this book. It also introduces a new class of nanofluids named-ionanofluids. Featuring contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field, this book is a unique reference source and an invaluable guide to scientists, researchers, engineers, industrial people, graduate and postgraduate students, as well as academicians across the science and engineering disciplines.

Book Review
"This is a very interesting book that brings the reader to the up-to-date state of knowledge in a variety of areas related to nanofluids. The first chapter describes the ways of preparation, crucial to the stability of the nanofluid. Lists of commercially available nanoparticles are also given. The next two chapters deal mostly with the enhancement of heat transfer in the presence of nanoparticles in a fluid. Measurements are examined and the available correlations since Maxwell are discussed. An up-to-date discussion of viscosity is presented in Chapter 5. The next chapters give a very good insight in capillary wetting, convective heat transfer and pool boiling, areas which are very interesting today. Chapter 9 presents a description of nanofluids in droplet-based microfluidics. Optical engineering applications are discussed in the next chapter while the book ends with a chapter in progress and challenges in nanofluids research. In general, it presents a very good opportunity for the reader to get a good insight in the field of nanofluid. Readers can be researchers, postgraduate and undergraduate students but as it reads easily, anybody else that wants to get a good understanding of the field." - Reviewed by Prof. Marc J. Assael, FIChemE, CEng, CSci, DIC, Director, Laboratory of Thermophysical Properties & Environmental Processes, Department of Chemical Engineering, Aristotle University.
