A two-fluid vertical channel flow and convective heat transfer model in which one of the two fluids is a nanofluid demonstrates that the nanofluid can modify the fluid velocity at the interface of the two fluids, and can be used to reduce shear at both the surface of the clear fluid and the interface of the two fluids. Moreover, we find that the addition of a nanofluiod can favorably modify thermal properties of the fluid.
