Undoubtedly, crude oil is one of the powerful sources of energy provision in the world. Knowing of the dynamic properties of crude oil is very important for engineering. It seems the dynamic properties of fuels can be improved by linking with nanotechnology. Nano particles which are prepared by a method of ultrasonic are applied in crude. Experiments are held in heated tube section for both simple oil and nano oil, which contains nano zinc oxide. The effect of temperature changes, addition of nano particle and length of the tube on values of friction factor, velocity, thermal conductivity, overall heat transfer coefficient, thermal diffusivity, and cinematic viscosity are investigated.
