Three-Dimensional Analysis of Condensation Nanofluid Film on an Inclined Rotating Disk by Efficient Analytical Methods
In this study, Least Square Method (LSM) and Differential Transform Method (DTM) are applied to solve the three dimensional problem of steady nanofluid deposition on an inclined rotating disk. Nanofluids are water based considering different nanoparticles. The governing non-linear partial differential equations are reduced to the nonlinear ordinary differential equations system by similarity transform. There is a good agreement between the present analytical and numerical results. Results indicate that increasing nanofluid volume fraction leads to increase in temperature profile and highest temperature obtained for Al2O3-water case.
