This paper aims to study the convective heat transfer behavior of aqueous suspensions of nano-diamond particles flowing through a horizontal tube heated under constant heat flux condition. Consideration is given to the effect of particle concentration and Reynolds number on heat transfer enhancement. It is found that (i) significant enhancement of heat transfer performance due to suspension of nano-diamond particles in the circular tube flow is observed in comparison with pure water as the working fluid, (ii) the enhancement is intensified with an increase in the Reynolds number and the nano-diamond concentration, and (iii) substantial amplification of heat transfer performance is not attributed purely to the enhancement of thermal conductivity due to suspension of nano-diamond particles.
