In this paper, molecular dynamics simulations of a simple Lennard-Jones fluid confined in narrow slit pores and undergoing shear have been performed. The aim is to investigate the effects of density inhomogeneities at the fluid-solid interfaces on the shear viscosity profiles. It has been found that the local viscosity was varying strongly with the distance… CONTINUE READING
