  • Abstract

Over the past decade different research groups have worked on heat transfer characteristic in a tube type heat exchanger with nanofluids as working fluids. The heat transfer augments with the use of nanofluids due to improved thermophysical properties with addition of nanoparticles in the base fluid. Further the enhancement can be attained by using inserts inside the tube. This review article presents the works done by different researchers using inserts and nanofluids. The heat transfer is greatly improved with combination of nanofluids and inserts.
