In this paper the experimental analysis of the thermal behavior of the single phase flows through an automobile radiator. The radiator is an important accessory of vehicle cooling system in the engine. Normally, it is used as a cooling system of the engine and generally, the water is the heat transfer medium. For this liquid-cooling system, the heat is removed via the circulating coolant surrounding the devices or entering the cooling channels in devices. Nanofluids have attracted attention as a new generation of heat transfer fluids in automotive cooling applications because of their excellent thermal performance. This paper attempts to improve the heat transfer characteristics of a vehicle cooling system using water combination based Graphene nanofluids as coolant. The thermal performance of a radiator operated with nanofluids is compared with a radiator using conventional coolant.
Keywords- Radiator, Nanofluids, Graphene, Carbon nanotube, Heat transfer performance.
