Thermal conductivity and dynamic viscosity play key role in heat transfer capacity of nanofluids. In the present study, thermal conductivity and dynamic viscosity of Fe2O3/water are modeled by applying various artificial neural network algorithms. The applied algorithms are MLP, GA-RBF, LSSVM, and CHPSO ANFIS algorithms. The data for modeling procedure are extracted from several experimental studies. Obtained results by the different algorithms are compared and it was concluded that the highest R-squared values belonged to GA-RBF algorithm which were equal to 0.9962 and 0.9982 for thermal conductivity ratio and dynamic viscosity, respectively.
