Dear All,

Could you tell me how to use mixture model in Fluent for nanofluids?

There are two phases, one is fluid (water) and one is solid (nanoparticle). I first create a solid material in the fluid material properties. Then for the primary phase, I consider all the water properties and secondary phase, I considered all the nanoparticle properties.

But where I will implement the effective values of density, specific heat, viscosity and thermal conductivity of nanofluids?

Kind Regards

GS
