TL;DR: In this article, the experimental and numerical studies performed to determine the effect of nanofluids on the performance of condensing and evaporating systems are summarized and some suggestions and recommendations are presented for future studies.
Abstract: Nanofluids can be utilized as efficient heat transfer fluids in many thermal energy systems to improve the system’s thermal efficiency. This survey reviews and summarizes the experimental and numerical studies performed to determine the effect of nanofluids on the performance of condensing and evaporating systems. Advantages and disadvantages of nanofluid implementation in condensing and evaporating systems are evaluated and summarized. Moreover, some suggestions and recommendations are presented for future studies. This review shows that the nanoparticle deposition and nanoparticle suspension are two important factors affecting the thermal system’s efficiency. These factors should be considered when using different nanofluids in condensing and evaporating systems.

TL;DR: In this article, a review of the literature on the area of heat transfer improvement employing a combination of nanofluid and inserts is performed, and the progress made and current challenges for each combined system are discussed, and some conclusions and suggestions are made for future research.
Abstract: Improving heat transfer is a critical subject for energy conservation systems which directly affects economic efficiency of these systems. There are active and passive methods which can be employed to enhance the rate of heat transfer without reducing the general efficiency of the energy conservation systems. Among these methods, passive techniques are more cost-effective and reliable in comparison with active ones as they have no moving parts. To achieve further improvements in heat transfer performances, some researchers combined passive techniques. This article performs a review of the literature on the area of heat transfer improvement employing a combination of nanofluid and inserts. Inserts are baffles, twisted tape, vortex generators, and wire coil inserts. The progress made and the current challenges for each combined system are discussed, and some conclusions and suggestions are made for future research.

TL;DR: This book by a teacher of statistics (as well as a consultant for "experimenters") is a comprehensive study of the philosophical background for the statistical design of experiment.
Abstract: THE DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF EXPERIMENTS. By Oscar Kempthorne. New York, John Wiley and Sons, Inc., 1952. 631 pp. $8.50. This book by a teacher of statistics (as well as a consultant for \"experimenters\") is a comprehensive study of the philosophical background for the statistical design of experiment. It is necessary to have some facility with algebraic notation and manipulation to be able to use the volume intelligently. The problems are presented from the theoretical point of view, without such practical examples as would be helpful for those not acquainted with mathematics. The mathematical justification for the techniques is given. As a somewhat advanced treatment of the design and analysis of experiments, this volume will be interesting and helpful for many who approach statistics theoretically as well as practically. With emphasis on the \"why,\" and with description given broadly, the author relates the subject matter to the general theory of statistics and to the general problem of experimental inference.

TL;DR: The work of the IPCC Working Group III 5th Assessment report as mentioned in this paper is a comprehensive, objective and policy neutral assessment of the current scientific knowledge on mitigating climate change, which has been extensively reviewed by experts and governments to ensure quality and comprehensiveness.
Abstract: The talk with present the key results of the IPCC Working Group III 5th assessment report. Concluding four years of intense scientific collaboration by hundreds of authors from around the world, the report responds to the request of the world's governments for a comprehensive, objective and policy neutral assessment of the current scientific knowledge on mitigating climate change. The report has been extensively reviewed by experts and governments to ensure quality and comprehensiveness.
