The suitability of the Green-Kubo method for predicting the thermal conductivity of nanocomposites is assessed by studying model Lennard-Jones superlattices. Good agreement is found when comparing the predicted cross-plane thermal conductivities to independent predictions from the direct method. The link between the supperlattice unit cell design and the thermal conductivity tensor is then explored. We find that complex, multilayered unit cell designs can reduce the cross-plane thermal… CONTINUE READING
