Molecular dynamics simulation of thermal transport in silicon-octane system.

Number: pap. O25

Author(s) : WANG Y., CHEN Z. Q.


In this paper, investigation of the thermal transport characteristics of silicon-octane at different temperatures with non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulation was presented. The silicon was diamond while both crystal octane and liquid octane were applied. The temperature profiles were obtained to calculate the interfacial conductivity and octane thermal conductivity. To study the effect of the crystal structure, heat was allowed to transfer in different direction. The results suggested that there was always a temperature slip in the interface, the interfacial thermal conductivity was very large, and the thermal conductivity of liquid octane was smaller than that of crystal octane. The direction had a large effect on thermal transport.
