Abstract

Background: Active scholars in the nanofluid field have continuously attempted to remove the associated challenge of the stability of nanofluids via various approaches, such as function-alization and adding a surfactant. After preparing a stable nanofluid, one must measure the properties, as this is vital in the design of thermal systems.
