The spectacular heat transfer enhancement revealed experimentally in naofluids suspensions is being investigated theoretically at the macro-scale level aiming at explaining the possible mechanisms that lead to such impressive experimental results. In particular, the possibility that Dual-Phase-Lagging heat conduction in the heterogeneous medium (nanofluid suspension) could have been the source of the excessively improved effective thermal conductivity of the suspension is shown to provide a viable explanation. The investigation of alternative possibilities is needed however prior to reaching an ultimate conclusion.
