Experimental investigations of convective heat transfer in nanofluid based on the Cu (approx. 0.15% and 0.25% vol.) nanoparticles synthesized in polyol process were conducted at constant heat flux conditions. A 30% increase in average heat transfer coefficient was found against the results obtained for a pure host liquid (ethylene glycol). Even more significant increase was in the entrance region.
