Thermal conductivity of a model nanowire, composed of Zr-Ti-Cu-Ni-Be amorphous alloy, has been studied by computer simulations and theoretical calculations. The results from the molecular dynamics simulations are compared to predictions from Fourier continuum mechanics theory, and with published experimental data. Analysis of the theoretical phonon thermal conductivity follows the previously published incoherent particle model. The novelty of this study is in the employment of amorphous...[Show more]
