Abstract

In line with recent studies, where it has been shown that nanofluids containing graphene have a stronger capacity to boost the heat transfer coefficient with respect to ordinary nanofluids, experiments have been conducted using water with cobalt ferrite/graphene nanoparticles. In particular, a circular channel made of copper subjected to a constant heat flux has been considered. As nanoparticles are sensitive to the presence of a magnetic field, different conditions have been examined, allowing both the strength and the frequency of such a field to span relatively wide ranges and assuming different concentrations of nanoparticles. According to the findings, the addition of nanoparticles to the fluid causes its rotation speed to increase by a factor of two, whereas ultraviolet radiation plays a negligible role. The amount of time required to attain the maximum rotation speed of the nanofluid and the Nusselt number have been measured under both constant and alternating magnetic fields for a ferrofluid with a concentration of 0.5% and at flow Reynolds number of 550 and 1750.
