The shear viscosity of molten sodium chloride is determined under a wide range of strain rates using nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations in the canonical (N,V,T) ensemble. Questions have been recently raised on the use of kinetic temperature thermostats, based on the equipartition principle, in simulations of nonequilibrium fluids and using a configurational temperature thermostat has been suggested to be more realistic. To further ascertain the results obtained in this work,...[Show more]
