The ISM equation of state for nano-fluids: The quantum effects analysis and volumetric properties assessment of the systems
In this study, the density of nanoparticles, nanofluids containing a base fluid and nanofluids containing a mixture of two base fluids in the compressive range of 0.1-45 MPa and a temperature range of 273-363 K were calculated and predicted. The equation of state used in this work is the Ihm-Sang-Mason equation of state. According to the quantum properties of nanoparticles, a part of quantum correction was used to calculate the second virial coefficient. The potential function of Morse three-parameters was used which is more flexible than the usual potential functions of two-parameters such as Lenard Jones 12-6.
