The synchronized molecular dynamics simulation via macroscopic heat and momentum transfer is proposed for the non-isothermal flow behaviors of complex fluids. In this method, the molecular dynamics simulations are assigned to small fluid elements to calculate the local stresses and temperatures and are synchronized at certain time intervals to satisfy the macroscopic heat- and momentum- transport equations. This method is applied to the lubrication of a polymeric liquid composed of short chains…
