This project sought to study the heat transfer and Kapitza resistance of fluids across interfaces, nanopores and nanochannels with varying sti.ness constants, mass and energy intermolecular in- teraction strength of wall and fluid particles. An Einstein-Maxwell molecular dynamics thermal wall model is developed. The developed modeling approach is shown to provide dual energy and momentum transport exchange across solid-liquid interfaces and nanofluidic channels. Cont/d.
