Specific heat measurement of pure PAOs and those with dispersed SiO2 nanoparticles (1 wt.%). The result shows no significant change in the specific heat. As reported in the literature [33, 34], the specific heat enhancement by nanoparticles seems only possible for molten salt nanofluids. The conventional effective specific heat model (Eq. 1) made a good agreement with the experimental data
