This work presents the need for a standardized reporting and a database of experimental heat transfer data of nanofluids, that allow evaluating the consistency of published data in the field, and support the development of predictive general models for the heat transfer behavior of nanofluids. The first attempts to build a comprehensive database of experimental heat transfer data of nanofluids are introduced, and the main challenges for the collection of the data are enumerated. The objective is to collect experimental data published in the scientific literature and consolidate a standardized database where data can be quickly searched by base fluid, nanoparticle type, heat transfer configuration or operation ranges, and be ready for its use by researches and engineers for the analysis and simulation of nanofluids as heat transfer fluids.
