Nanofluids can be designed by adding nanosized particles in low volumetric fractions to a fluid. The nanoparticles improve the fluid’s rheological, mechanical, optical, and thermal properties. Suspensions of nanosized particles may provide the following advantages: (1) Nanosized particles can have enhanced stability against sedimentation since surface forces easily balance the gravity force, and (2) Thermal, optical, mechanical, electrical, rheological, and magnetic properties of nanoparticles, which depend significantly on size and shape, can be customized during manufacture and are often superior to the base material.
