On the wavevector dependent shear viscosity of a simple fluid

Travis, Karl; Searles, Debra; Evans, Denis

Description

Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations employing the sinusoidal transverse force (STF) method are used to calculate the wavevector and strain rate dependent shear viscosity of a WCA fluid at a zero wavevector number density of 0.8442 and zero wavevector temperature of 0.722. The functional form of the dependence of shear viscosity on the strain rate and wavevector are examined, in the zero field limit The ramifications of these results for the possible existence of the Burnett...[Show more]
