%X Conventional liquids have some limitations regarding the thermal properties. The nanoparticles addition is one of the techniques which can transcend them. In this research, heat transfer coefficient (h) and pressure loss (Δp) of various nanofluids containing Al2O3, SiO2, and MgO nanoparticles dispersed in water in an annular tube with constant wall temperature is considered. According to the literature, five different nanofluid volume concentrations (1%, 2%, 3%, 4% and 5%) are selected. Two models involving the mixture and VOF are applied, and the results are compared. The average convective heat transfer coefficient and pressure loss is enhanced with volume fraction and Reynolds number (Re) increment (3000
