Material functions of liquid n-hexadecane under steady shear via nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations: temperature, pressure, and density effects.

Computer experiments of rheology regarding the effects of temperature (T), pressure (P), and density (rho) on steady shear flow material functions, which include viscosity (eta) and first and second normal stress coefficients (psi(1) and psi(2)) depending on shear rate (gamma), have been conducted via nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations for liquid… (More)
