Ching-Yu Kao: Viscous Flow Computations with Molecular Dynamics

This research determined the viscosity of a fluid. To this end, molecular dynamics was used to simulate a channel flow environment. By applying a continuous external force, a parabolic velocity profile was obtained. By analysis of these profiles, the viscosity of the simulated fluid was computed.
