Heat exchanger specification, nanofluid properties and mathematical formulations were taken from the .
Heat exchanger specification, nanofluid properties and mathematical formulations were taken from the literature to analyze thermal and energy performance of the heat recovery system. It was observed that the convective and overall heat transfer coefficient increased with the application of nanofluids compared to ethylene glycol or water based fluids. However, the conventional correlations for nanofluid heat transfer and friction factor are not suitable and hence various correlations have been developed for the estimation of Nusselt number and friction factor for both laminar and turbulent flow conditions inside a tube with inserts.
The nanofluids superior heat transfer capability depends on its thermophysical properties. The authors of this treatise, from their experimental expertise, have presented useful correlations for the thermophysical properties, which are valuable for engineering applications using nanofluids.

In this study, all of the nanofluid properties are temperature and nanoparticle volume concentration dependent. The governing equations have been solved using finite volume approach with the SIMPLER algorithm. The results indicate an increase in the averaged heat transfer coefficient with increasing the mass of ethylene glycol in the water base fluid, solid concentration and Reynolds number.
The heat transfer and flow behavior performance of these nanofluid suspensions were studied as a function of various parameter such as rectangular tubes aspect ratio, radius of coil, number of turns, Reynolds number and Dean number.
