    Abstract: The numerous industrial and engineering applications of Casson nanofluid is due to the superiority of its thermophysical properties. Tomatoes paste, engine oil, soup etc., are examples of Casson fluid and when nanometer-sized particles are suspended in such Casson fluid, it becomes Casson nanofluid. This paper considers a natural convective magneto... Show More

    Abstract: This experimental study describes the effect of the oscillating grid on hydrodynamics and mass transfer in an aquarium. The contribution of the two driving elements CO2 and oscillating grid is identified. Depending on the operating conditions, either these two effects add up and promote the circulation and transport of the liquid, or these effects ... Show More
