Summary
This paper presents a state of the art review on the research and development of conduction (thermal\nconductivity) and convection heat transfer characteristics of ethylene glycol-based nanofluids.\nNanofluids preparation and stabilization methods are summarized and discussed. The effects of nanoparticles\ntype, size and concentration as well as temperature on the thermal conductivity of available ethylene\nglycol and ethylene glycol/water mixture-based nanofluids have been critically and individually\nanalyzed and discussed. Studies on convective heat transfer of these nanofluids have also been reviewed\nand results from different studies are compared. The review clearly demonstrates that these nanofluids\npossess considerably higher thermal conductivity and convective heat transfer characteristics compared\nto their base fluids i.e., ethylene glycol and its aqueous mixture. These thermal features of nanofluids are\nkey factors for their performance in thermal management and energy applications. With the enhanced\nthermal conductivity and convective heat transfer coefficient nanofluids offer immense potential in\nenergy harvesting and storage as well as to advanced cooling applications.
