dc.description.abstract Numerous studies reveal that the heat transfer capability of thermal systems has been significantly enhanced with the use of nanofluids. On the other hand, the hazardous nature of the nanoparticles is evident. Recent studies clearly indicate that the nanoparticles affect the human health as well as the environment. Therefore environmentally safe bio-nanofluids are currently under investigation. In this study, a novel heat transfer fluid with bio-nanomaterial is prepared and its natural convection heat transfer characteristics are studied. The bionanomaterial considered in this study is powdered mango bark. A two-step process is employed to prepare stable nanofluids. The effect of particles concentration, the temperature difference between the hot and cold side, and Rayleigh number on the natural convection heat transfer process is studied. The experimental results show that the natural convection process is deteriorated with the addition of mango nanoparticles in deionized water. en
