  7. Abstract:
  8. In the present study, Nano-fluid natural convection on a constant temperature vertical plate is numerically investigated, following the similarity analysis of transport equations. After changing the governing differential equations to the ordinary differential equations, they were numerically solved by the fourth order Runge-Kutta method.. The analysis shows that all three main profiles, velocity, temperature and concentration in their specific boundary layers, and the Prandtle number, depend on three important additional dimensionless parameters, namely a Brownian motion parameter, a thermophoresis parameter, and a buoyancy ratio parameter. Finally, it was found that the Nusselt number in nanofluids is almost equal to the Nusselt number in pure fluid (when both fluids are without nanoparticles)
