Abstract / Description of output
We investigate the hydrodynamic properties of a Lennard Jones fluid confined to a nanochannel using molecular dynamics simulations. For channels of different widths and hydrophilic-hydrophobic surface wetting properties, profiles of the fluid density, stress, and viscosity across the channel are obtained and analysed. In particular, we propose a linear relationship between the density and viscosity in confined and strongly inhomogeneous nanofluidic flows. The range of validity of this relationship is explored in the context of coarse grained models such as dynamic density functional-theory.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of nanoconfined fluids at solidliquid interfaces'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
