Abstract—A colloidal mixture of nano-sized particles in a base liquid called nanofluid, which is the new generation of heat transfer fluid for various heat transfer applications with enhanced thermo physical properties and heat transfer performance can be applied in many devices for better performances. Specific application of nanofluids in engine cooling, solar water heating, cooling and heating in buildings and cooling of heat exchanging devices have been discussed. Moreover, challenges and future directions of other applications of nanofluids have been presented in this paper.

Index Terms—Nano fluids, Nano sized particles
