This PhD Thesis aims to characterize different conventional thermal fluids and propose new nanofluids based on their thermophysical, rheological, (solid-liquid) phase equilibria and their capability to heat transfer or heat storage. The selected conventional fluids are commonly used in the majority of heat transfer systems such as ethylene glycol (EG), propylene glycol (PG), a (ethylene glycol + water) mixture at 50 vol.% (EG+W), or the (diphenyl ether + biphenyl) mixtures. The nanofluids were designed through the two-step method by dispersing metallic oxide nanoparticles (A-TiO2, A+R-TiO2, MgO, ZnO and ZrO2) at mass concentrations up to 25% in the mentioned bas...
