%X In the present article, we investigate experimental
laminar forced convective heat transfer specifications of TiO2/water
nanofluids through conduits with different cross sections. we check
the effects of different parameters such as cross sectional shape,
Reynolds number and concentration of nanoparticles in stable
suspension on increasing convective heat transfer by designing and
assembling of an experimental apparatus. The results demonstrate
adding a little amount of nanoparticles to the base fluid, improves
heat transfer behavior in conduits. Moreover, conduit with circular
cross-section has better performance compared to the square and
triangular cross sections. However, conduits with square and
triangular cross sections have more relative heat transfer enchantment
than conduit with circular cross section.
