|Abstract:||Influence of Al₂O₃ nanoparticles on nucleate pool boiling heat transfer of diluted binary water-glycerol mixtures has been experimentally measured up to heat flux 91 kW/m2 at diluted volume fractions of 1% to 5% of glycerol into pure water at volumetric concentrations 0.5%, 1% and 1.5% of Al₂O₃ nanoparticles. Obtained results indicate that presence of nanoparticles into the mixtures result in increasing the pool boiling heat transfer coefficient values and also result in decreasing the wall superheat temperature of surface. Increased values of heat transfer are increased with increasing the volume fractions of Al₂O₃ too. Generally, it is concurred that Al₂O₃ nanoparticles typically enhance the pool boiling heat transfer coefficient of binary water-glycerol mixture in comparison with absence of nanoparticles circumstances, up to 25% at 1.5% Al₂O₃. Additionally, new simple semi - mathematical model has been proposed for a rough estimating of enhanced values with uncertainty about 8%.|
