In recent decade, the development in nanotechnology inspired the scientists and industrialists due to its wide variety of fantastic applications. The challenges in the heat transfer processes in the industries and in many other engineering and medical fields have been overcome by the development of nanofluid dynamics. A suspension of nanosized particles (metallic or non-metallic) with poor heat transfer base fluids (Water or Organic solvents) is called Nanofluids. Nanofluids have application in magnetic sealants (mechanical), solar water heater (energy), antibacterial, theranosticm and nanocryo surgery (medical) etc. Both theoretical and experimental researchers is being tried to develop the concept of nanofluids due its enhanced thermal properties and energy saving effect. Still we are in need of more theoretical and experimental multidisciplinary researches on nanofluids.

This special issue focuses on covering a variety of scientific topics related to the developments in the field of nanotechnology and heat transfer. its main target is to provide a platform for the researchers across different fields who are involved with heat transfer nanotechnology and fluid dynamics. Therefore, we invite high-quality research papers focusing on recent and significant studies on modelling and simulation of nanofluids in different engineering geometries.
