- adj. Of or pertaining to nanofluidics
- n. A fluid confined in a nanoscale structure
"For example, if you are using water to cool electronic equipment and you add these nanoparticles and create a nanofluid, it improves the water's capability to conduct heat by 30 to 40 percent."
Scientists at Sweden's Institute of Technology have developed a nanofluid solution that could eventually be used to cool massive data centers and server farms.
Nanofluids in BHT are only more recently studied, e.g., the proposed nanofluid is alumina NPs in nuclear reactors.
In fission for example, there are plenty of research areas, such as annular fuel or nanofluid coolant, which have similar game-changing potential.
Finally, the uncertainty quantification team will establish a framework to calculate the level of uncertainty of various engineering systems including bone fractures, nanofluid heat transfer systems, structural elements and nanoparticle transport systems.
"[So], I think within 3 to 7 years we [can] expect to see a breakthrough and a mainstream application of this nanofluid technology.
