Temperature dependence of transport coefficients of ‘simple liquid' below 1 K

O.S. Oyekola


Temperature variation of transport coefficients of liquid argon below temperature of 1 K (in reduced unit) for system of 500 atoms interacting through a Lennard-Jones 6-12 potential using classical molecular-dynamics (MD) simulations has been investigated. The study carried out at two densities, r* = 0.60 and r* = 0.95. Result shows erratic variations of the shear viscosity in the two lattices structures.

KeyWords: Temperature effect, face centred, simple cubic, transport properties, simple liquid.
