Abstract: Copper oxide superconducting nanofluids exhibit a lot of very interesting technological properties and their behaviour is typical of a two- phase nanofluid. Near the superconductivity trasition temperature, their electrical conductivity is the sum of a normal conductivity component and a flux flow superconducting contribution from the unpinned motion of vortices within the sample. Armed with recent experimental results for regular type II superconductivity nanosamples, we review the corresponding expected behaviour for CuO High Temperature Superconducting (HTSC) systems. The equivalent Navier-Stokes equations that go under the name Ginzburg–Landau equations for the superconducting density are briefly reviewed and their solutions are presented in a clear way for the particular problem. Contribution of fluctuations of the structural vortex lattice, which is a stable solution of the Time Dependent Ginzburg-Landau (TDGL) equations, to the flux flow two -phase conductivity is briefly presented. The corresponding discussion for the two-phase thermal conductivity of a superconducting nanosample is going to be presented in a separate future publication.
