Nanofluids are extensively applied in various heat transfer mediums for improving their heat transfer characteristics and hence their performance. Specific heat capacity of nanofluids, as one of the thermophysical properties, performs principal role in heat transfer of thermal mediums utilizing nanofluids. In this regard, different studies have been carried out to investigate the influential factors on nanofluids specific heat. Moreover, several regression models based on correlations or artificial intelligence have been developed for forecasting this property of nanofluids. In the current review paper, influential parameters on the specific heat capacity of nanofluids are introduced. Afterwards, the proposed models for their forecasting and modeling are proposed. According to the reviewed works, concentration and properties of solid structures in addition to temperature affect specific heat capacity to large extent and must be considered as inputs for the models. Moreover, by using other effective factors, the accuracy and comprehensive of the models can be modified. Finally, some suggestions are offered for the upcoming works in the relevant topics.
