Abstract—Looking into the present day need of automobile heat disposal methods, many researchers are exploring the best means to absorb and dissipate the heat from an engine in an efficient manner. Many automobile giants have invested enormous time and money in this field to analyze overall heat transfer coefficient with variety of fluids. The recent developments were use of nano particles in the base fluids as heat transfer medium. This paper focuses on analysis of overall heat transfer coefficient in an automobile engine radiator with nano fluids (TiO2) a research proposal to investigate how best these nano fluids are beneficial to the automobiles with certain objectives and the expected out comes were discussed.
Index Terms—Nano fluids, Volume flow, Turbulent flow, Nusselt number, Reynolds number, Heat transfer co-efficient
