Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo Simulations for Heat Transfer in Micro and Nano-channels


There is a tendency to cool mechanical and electrical components by microchannels. When the channel size decreases, the continuum approach starts to fail and particle based methods should be used. In this paper, a dense gas in micro and nano-channels is modelled by molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations. It is shown that in the limit situation both… (More)
