Reports from Novosibirsk State University Provide New Insights into Physics Research

May 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators publish new report on Physics Research. According to news reporting originating in Novosibirsk, Russia, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "The heat-transfer coefficient of nanofluid during its flow in a cylindrical channel is studied experimentally. The studied nanofluid was prepared based on distilled water and CuO nanoparticles."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Novosibirsk State University, "Nanoparticle concentration varied in the range from 0.25 to 2% in the volume. The nanofluid was stabilized using a xanthane gum biopolymer the mass concentration of which did not exceed 0.03%. Considerable intensification of heat transfer was found. The nanofluid appeared to be Newtonian when particle concentrations exceeded 0.25%."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Estimates for rheological parameters of the nanofluid and thermal conductivity coefficient have been obtained."
