Structurally stable atomistic one-dimensional shock waves have long been simulated by injecting fresh cool particles and extracting old hot particles at opposite ends of a simulation box. The resulting shock profiles demonstrate tensor temperature, Txx≠Tyy and Maxwell's delayed response, with stress lagging strain rate and heat flux lagging temperature gradient. Here this same geometry, supplemented by a short-ranged external "plug" field, is used to simulate steady Joule-Kelvin throttling flow…

Transient Heat Flow in a One-component Lennard-Jones/spline Fluid. A Non-equilibrium Molecular Dynamics Study
A one-component Lennard-Jones/spline fluid at equilibrium was perturbed by a sudden change of the temperature at one of the system’s boundaries. The system’s response was determined by
Theory and simulation of shock waves: Entropy production and energy conversion.
The GEM showed that most of the shock's kinetic energy was converted reversibly into enthalpy and entropy, and a small amount was dissipated as produced entropy, while the overpressure determined from NEMD simulations agreed well with the Rankine-Hugoniot conditions for steady-state shocks.
Simulation of Joule-Thomson Throttling of Gases
A complete general theory for non-equilibrium states is currently lacking. Non-equilibrium states are hard to reproduce experimentally, but creating computer simulations of relatively simple and

An analytical description of transient thermal processes in harmonic crystals
We consider two transient thermal processes in uniformly heated harmonic crystals: (i) equalibration of kinetic and potential energies and (ii) redistribution of the kinetic energy among the spatial
Equilibration of kinetic temperatures in face-centered cubic lattices.
It is shown that in the anharmonic case the approach to thermal equilibrium has two time scales, and a universal curve describing equilibration in the Lennard-Jones crystal over a wide range of temperatures is obtained.

We study transient thermal processes in infinite harmonic crystals with complex (polyatomic) lattice. Initially particles have zero displacements and random velocities such that distribution of

An instant homogeneous thermal perturbation in the simplest model of the finite harmonic one-dimensional crystal is studied. Previously it was shown that for the same problem in the infinite crystal


Tensor temperature and shock-wave stability in a strong two-dimensional shock wave.
The anisotropy of temperature is studied here in a strong two-dimensional shock wave, simulated with conventional molecular dynamics, and the decay of sinusoidal shock-front perturbations shows that strongTwo-dimensional planar shock waves are stable to such perturbation.

A very great depression of temperature has been remarked by some observers when steam of high pressure issues from a small orifice into the open air. After the experiments we have made on the rush of

In the early 1850s Joule and Thomson measured the cooling experienced by a flowing gas on passing an obstacle that caused a decrease in pressure. The mythical ‘perfect gas’, which conforms exactly to
