dc.description.abstractCoolants are vital in any automotive since they manage the heat in the internal combustion of the engines by preventing corrosion in the cooling system as well as assist in eradicating the engine’s waste heat. This paper examines three different types of ethylene glycol-based hybrid nanofluids ((Cu-Al2O3), (Cu-TiO2), (TiO2-Al2O3)) to establish their cooling capabilities for industrial cooling applications. The vertical flow of these hybrid nanofluids combination through a semi-infinite convectively heated flat plate mimicking the flow of coolant in car radiator is modeled. The governing non-linear partial differential equations of fluid flow are transformed into a system of coupled non-linear ordinary differential equations using a suitable similarity transformation variables and the numerical solution executed using the shooting technique together with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg integration scheme. The numerical simulation is executed using MATLAB and results are displayed graphically. The effects of pertinent parameters on velocity, temperature, skin friction, and local Nusselt number are investigated. From the study (Cu-Al2O3 hybrid nanocoolant leads to a rapid decrease in temperature at the boundary layer.en_US
