Potential of molecular dynamics in the simulation of nanofluids properties and stability

Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations serve as an effective approach to analyze how different parameters affect the thermal and rheological properties of nanofluids, as well as their stability.
The concentration of nanoparticles has a positive influence on thermal conductivity and viscosity, a negative influence on specific heat, and a minimal impact on density in nanofluids. Moreover, enhancing nanofluid stability can be achieved by increasing the proportion of water in the nanofluid composition and utilizing nanoparticles with a spherical shape.
