Abstract: This paper summary of heat transfer characteristics and nano fluids mechanics by using single phase convection techniques. Gas having less thermal conductivity compare than the liquids having high thermal conductivity. The heat transfer enhancement improved by using nano fluids Al2O3 compared with base water. The heat transfer enhancement was analysed with plain tube and twisted tape inserts with nano fluids. The experimental investigation was analysed and reading was taken to improve the heat transfer and friction flow characteristics. The Reynolds number varies from different ranges with plain water and Nano fluids. The experimental record of nano fluid heat transfer value was increased with 2.89 percentage compare with the experimental record of plain water. The nano fluids has more concentration than the plain water.
