At present, no unified model predicts the viscosity of nanofluids. This paper sets out a novel viscosity model designed to resolve this issue.
The model draw upon regression analysis of carefully selected several published papers covering experimental, numerical and theoretical findings to propose the effective viscosity model. Unlike some other models, this one is reliable and has a good level of accuracy. This model has been assessed in a numerical investigation using a 3D horizontal pipe and presenting the results.This is a new model for predicting the viscosity of nanofluids. The proposed model has been tested in 3D horizontal pipe, and the predicted results for viscosity and Nusselt number show good agreement with available data.
