TL;DR: In this paper, a comprehensive review is conducted on the simultaneous application of nanofluids and porous media for heat transfer enhancement purposes in thermal systems with different structures, flow regimes, and boundary conditions.
Abstract: Researchers in heat transfer field always attempt to find new solutions to optimize the performance of energy devices through heat transfer enhancement. Among various methods which are implemented to reinforce the thermal performance of energy systems, one is the dispersion of solid nanoparticles in common working fluids such as water. The suspension is called nanofluid. On the other hand, utilizing porous media in heat exchangers is another technique to augment of thermal efficiency. Porous media by providing high surface area contact will ameliorate heat transfer rate in ducts. In the present work, a comprehensive review is conducted on the simultaneous application of nanofluids and porous media for heat transfer enhancement purposes in thermal systems with different structures, flow regimes, and boundary conditions.

TL;DR: Scattering experiments show that in carbon-12 the neutron-proton pairs are nearly 20 times as prevalent as proton- Proton pairs and, by inference, neutron-neutron pairs, which has implications for understanding cold dense nuclear systems such as neutron stars.
Abstract: The protons and neutrons in a nucleus can form strongly correlated nucleon pairs. Scattering experiments, in which a proton is knocked out of the nucleus with high-momentum transfer and high missing momentum, show that in carbon-12 the neutron-proton pairs are nearly 20 times as prevalent as proton-proton pairs and, by inference, neutron-neutron pairs. This difference between the types of pairs is due to the nature of the strong force and has implications for understanding cold dense nuclear systems such as neutron stars.
TL;DR: In this paper, the diffusion-thermo, radiation-absorption and Hall and ion slip effects on MHD free convective rotating flow of nano-fluids (Ag and TiO2) past a semi-infinite permeable moving plate with constant heat source are discussed.
Abstract: The diffusion-thermo, radiation-absorption and Hall and ion slip effects on MHD free convective rotating flow of nano-fluids (Ag and TiO2) past a semi-infinite permeable moving plate with constant heat source are discussed. Making use of Perturbation technique, we found velocity, temperature and concentration and are discussed through graphs. We evaluated the skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number analytically and computationally discussed. The resultant velocity reduces with increasing rotation parameter and enhances with increasing Hall and ion slip parameters and Dufour parameter. Radiation-absorption parameter leads to increase the thermal boundary layer thickness. Nusselt number decreases with suction parameter and Sherwood number increases chemical reaction parameter.
TL;DR: In this paper, the Hall and ion slip effects on the MHD convective flow of elastico-viscous fluid through porous medium between two rigidly rotating parallel plates with time fluctuating sinusoidal pressure gradient were investigated.
Abstract: We investigated the Hall and ion slip effects on the MHD convective flow of elastico-viscous fluid through porous medium between two rigidly rotating parallel plates with time fluctuating sinusoidal pressure gradient in this paper. In an initially undisturbed state both the fluid and the plates are in rigid rotation with the uniform angular velocity Ω about the normal to the plates. At t > 0 the fluid is driven by a fluctuating pressure gradient parallel to the channel walls. Analytical solutions for the velocity, temperature and concentration are evaluated and discussed computationally with the help of graphical profiles. For engineering interest, we obtained skin friction, Nusselt number, Sherwood number and volumetric flow rate and discussed numerically. Elasticity and magnetic field resist the fluid motion gets thinner boundary layer. Lesser frequency of oscillating pressure gradient frightens the reverse flow. The similar variation of skin friction should be circumvented with less significant time span and strength of the magnetic field.
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors studied free convective flow and heat transfer of a suspension of nano-encapsulated phase change materials (NEPCMs) in an enclosure and found that the enhancement of heat transfer is highly dependent on the non-dimensional fusion temperature, θf, and very good performance can be achieved in the range of ¼ < θ f < 0.
Abstract: Free convective flow and heat transfer of a suspension of Nano Encapsulated Phase Change Materials (NEPCMs) in an enclosure is studied. NEPCM particles are core-shell structured with Phase Change Material (PCM) as the core. The enclosure is a square cavity with top and bottom insulated walls and differentially-heated isothermal vertical walls. The NEPCM particles circulate under natural convection inside the cavity. The PCM cores undergo phase change from solid to liquid and absorb some of the surrounding’s heat in the form of latent heat in the hot region, and release the absorbed heat in the cold region by solidification. The governing equations representing the conservation of mass, flow, and heat of NEPCM suspension are introduced in the form of partial differential equations. The governing equations are transformed into non-dimensional form and solved by the finite element method. A grid check and validation test are performed to ensure the accuracy of the results. The outcomes show that the fusion temperature of NEPCM particles is the key factor affecting the heat transfer enhancement of NEPCMs in the natural convection flow. The enhancement of heat transfer is highly dependent on the non-dimensional fusion temperature, θf, and very good performance can be achieved in the range of ¼ < θf < ¾. Comparing to the base fluid, a relative enhancement of about 10% can be achieved by using NEPCMs at a non-dimensional fusion temperature of ¼.
