Exergy loss analysis for nanofluid forced convection heat transfer in a pipe with modified turbulators
In this research, second law and exergy analysis for nanofluid turbulent flow due to inserting modified turbulators has been studied. Nanofluid behavior is predicted via single phase model. Finite volume method is considered to model the governing equations. Exergy loss and second law performance were calculated for various values of revolution angle and Reynolds number. Also good correlations have been offered according to outputs. Results indicate that second law performance is an augmenting function of revolution angle. Exergy loss enhances with decrease of revolution angle and Reynolds number.
