ABSTRACT
Studies the viscosity of Weeks-Chandler-Andersen fluids confined in narrow split pores using the nonequilibrium molecular dynamics technique and the application of the theory of transport in highly inhomogenous systems. Equilibrium and nonequilibrium density profiles; Equilibrium pair correlation functions; Flow velocity profiles; Variations of viscosity with position across the pore.

    The prediction of viscosity by molecular simulation has been a goal of molecular modeling essentially since its inception. With today's computing power, the Newtonian or zero shear viscosity of a low molecular weight fluid can easily be determined using equilibrium and nonequilibrium molecular...

    For hard spheres in an external field it is shown that free energy density functionals of the type suggested by Percus [J. Chem. Phys. 75, 1316 (1981)] lead to certain approximations to the Born–Green–Yvon equation. For two functionals these approximations are worked out explicitly...
