This paper reports on experimental investigation of the rheological behavior of copper oxide nanoparticles dispersed in a 60:40 propylene glycol and water mixture. Nanofluids of a particle volume concentration from 0 to 6% have been tested in this study. The experiments were conducted over a temperature range of −35 °C to 50 °C to establish their behavior for use as a heat transfer fluid in cold climates. The experiments reveal that this nanofluid in the range of particle volume percentage tested exhibits a Newtonian behavior. A new exponential correlation has been developed from the experimental data, which expresses the viscosity as a function of particle volume percent and the temperature of the nanofluid. The slope of relative viscosity curve was found to be higher at lower temperatures.
