    We use molecular dynamics simulations to study the shear flow of a polymer solution in a nanochannel by using an explicit, atomistic model of the solvent. The length scales representing the chain size, channel size, and the molecular scale structure in these nanochannels are comparable. The...

    We compare a newly developed hybrid simulation method which combines classical molecular dynamics (MD) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to a simulation consisting only of molecular dynamics. The hybrid code is composed of three regions: a classical MD region, a continuum domain where the...

    Single macromolecules can now be isolated and characterized experimentally using techniques such as optical tweezers and videomicroscopy. An interesting and important single-molecule problem is that of the dynamics of a polymer chain tethered to a solid surface and subjected to a shear flow. An...

    In the present article, we have analyzed to which extent the steady states produced in simulations of fluids undergoing shear flow, can truly be representations of experimental steady states. For this purpose, we have performed nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations of two...

    Using classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, we report on the development and propagation of a nonlinear heat front in parallel shear flows of a strongly coupled Yukawa liquid. At a given coupling strength, a subsonic shear profile is superposed on an equilibrated Yukawa liquid and...

    We have carried out molecular dynamic simulations over a range of densities for two-dimensional fluids consisting of hard, soft, and Lennard-Jones disks. For comparison we have also carried out simulations for the corresponding systems in which all but one particle are frozen in position. We...

    A new approach to calculating diffusivities, both transport as well as equilibrium, is presented. The dual control volume grand canonical molecular dynamics (or DCV-GCMD) method employs two local control volumes for chemical potential control via particle creation/destruction as in grand...

    The WCA reference system is investigated for four- and five-dimensional Lennard-Jones fluids by molecular dynamics simulations. It is found that the WCA prescription for the scaling of the reference system to a hard hypersphere one is a very good approximation in the fluid region.

    Mutual diffusion coefficients for selected alkanes in carbon tetrachloride were calculated using molecular dynamics and Lennard-Jones (LJ) potentials. Use of effective spherical LJ parameters is desirable when possible for two reasons: (i) computer time is saved due to the simplicity of the...
