Abstract

Realistic molecular dynamics simulations of n-dodecane narrowly confined between mica surfaces under shear were performed. The orders of magnitude increase of the Newtonian viscosity and the shear rate at which the onset of shear-thinning occurs are remarkably close to those measured in previous SFA experiments. The results predict even more dramatic effects for n-dodecane confined to smaller thickness.
