In this paper, forced convection of water/EG-Al2O3 nanofluids inside horizontal stainless steel tube is studied experimentally. As base fluid served water/EG mixture of two ratios (60:50 and 50:50). Nanoparticle mass concentrations was 0.1% or and 1%. Transition and turbulent flow regimes were tested. Average heat transfer coefficient and pressure drop values were determined for nanofluids and compared to base fluids. Deterioration of heat transfer for all tested nanofluids has been recorded compared to base fluid. Negligible increase of pressure drop for nanofluids compared to base fluids has been observed.
