nanofluids modelling
Hello friends and experts of fluent,
I am doing my project work in the area of heat transfer and fluid flow analysis of nanofluids in microchannels,i do not have any idea how to model nanofluids in fluent,Please anyone post your suggestions and ideas how to model this problem in fluent.Thanks in advance.

Since FLUENT solves the Navier-Stokes equations, and the Navier-Stokes equations break down when the length scale becomes too small (because of the assumption of a continuum), I'm not sure how well FLUENT would be able to predict flow at that level. FLUENT may claim that it can give you an answer, and you might get one, but I'm not sure that I would trust it.

nano fluid
Do you have any validation case so that i can check the capability of Fluent/CFX.
