Abstract: Nanofluids, stable colloidal suspensions of nanoparticles in a base fluid, have potential applications in the heat transfer, combustion and propulsion, manufacturing, and medical fields. Experiments were conducted to determine the evaporation rate of room temperature, millimeter-sized pendant droplets of ethanol laden with varying (0–3%) weight percentages of 40–60 nm aluminum nanoparticles (nAl). High-resolution droplet images were collected as a function of time for the determination of D-square law evaporat… Show more
