The closely related Green-Kubo and Helfand moment approaches are applied to obtain the thermal conductivity tensor of β -1,3,5,7-tetranitro-1,3,5,7-tetrazoctane (β -HMX) at T = 300 K and P = 1 atm from equilibrium molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Direct application of the Green-Kubo formula exhibits slow convergence of the integrated thermal conductivity values even for long (120 ns) simulation times. To partially mitigate this slow convergence we developed a numerical procedure that…
