Abstract

We use the Stochastic Rotation Dynamics (SRD) to simulate the fluid flow in 2D Carbon Nanotubes. The SRD algorithm is able to simulate flow in different length scale of the fluids. First of all, we use SRD algorithm to simulate the macroscopic Helium flow as a simple interacting system. Using Green-Kubo formula, viscosity of the system as a macroscopic quantity has been calculated. Then, we apply our algorithm to simulate the Helium flow through the Carbon Nanotube in two dimensions. Finally, we find the effect of interaction of Carbon Nanotube with viscosity as a function of temperature. Also, our simulation shows the viscoelastic effects in 2D flow. Copyright © 2006 by ASME.
