Resum
Recent experimental evidence has clearly demonstrated that nanofluids do not provide the greatly enhanced heat transfer predicted in the past. Despite seemingly conclusive proof there is still a great deal of current mathematical research asserting the opposite result. In this paper we scrutinise the mathematical work and demonstrate that the disagreement can be traced to a number of issues. These include the incorrect formulation of the governing equations; the use of parameter values orders of...
