AbstractBlade configuration of nanofluids has been proven to perform much better than dispersed configuration for some heat conduction systems. The analytical analysis and numerical calculation are made for the cylinder-shaped and regular-rectangular-prism-shaped building blocks of the blade-configured heat conduction systems (using nanofluids as the heat conduction media) to find the optimal cross-sectional shape for the nanoparticle blade under the same composing materials, composition ratio, volumetric heat generation rate, and total building block volume. The regular-triangular-prism-shaped blade has been proven to perform better than all the other three kinds of blades, namely, the regular-rectangular-prism-shaped blade, the regular-hexagonal-prism-shaped blade, and the cylinder-shaped blade. Thus, the regular-triangular-prism-shaped blade is selected as the optimally shaped blade for the two kinds of building blocks that are considered in this study. It is also proven that the constructal cylinder-regular-triangular-prism building block performs better than the constructal regular-rectangular-prism-regular-triangular-prism building block. © 2011 Bai and Wang.
