Abstract: The effects of silver nanowire size on the thermal conductivities of ethylene glycol-based nanofluids were investigated experimentally. The effects of altering the loading concentration of nanowires, and altering the temperature were also investigated. In addition to this, an investigation into the effects of the nanowire dimensions on the rheological properties of the nanofluids was also conducted. Theoretical models were then developed based on the experimental results.
