1. Thousands of papers and researchs have been done in this topic with wide spectrum of divers’ data and prediction. Some authors reported significant enhancement in the rate of heat transfer, even by adding a few percentages of nanofluid heat transferred enhances by more than one-fold (more than 100%). On the other hand, a few researchers did not find significant effect of adding nanoparticles for a fluid. Others find that adding nano particle to a fluid will have negative effect on the rate of heat transfer. How we can explain all of those published data?
2. An over review of methods used to solve Navier Stokes equation compared with LBM. The simplicity if LBM in coding and adding more physics to the problem will be explained. Also, a few examples from fluid flow and heat transfer will be explained.
