    The text offers a detailed presentation of mathematical, numerical, and experimental techniques for nanofluids. It further covers the synthesis, characterization, stability, and heat transport. The book comprehensively discusses topics such as the comparison of heat transfer models, flow features of ternary hybrid nanofluids, thermodynamics and mass diffusion, and natural convection in triangular cavities.

    This book:

    • Emphasizes the enhancement of heat transfer processes through nanoparticles, extending beyond heat transfer to applications in renewable energy.      
    • Explores the applications of nanofluids in enhancing food processing and agricultural practices.
    • Covers thermal instability of couple-stress on viscous-elastic nanofluid flow and natural convection in a triangular cavity.
    • Explains concepts including nanofluid-based energy storage, mass diffusion, thermodynamics, and nanofluid synthetic techniques.
    • Presents topics such as numerical methods, fluid dynamics simulation, magnetohydrodynamics, heat and mass transfer, and radiation. 

    It is primarily written for senior undergraduates, graduate students, and academic researchers in the fields of mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, automotive engineering, industrial and production engineering, energy engineering, fluid dynamics, and tribology.
