Abstract: The presence of sub-continuum effects in nano-scale systems, including size and boundary effects, causes the continuum-level relations (e.g., Fourier heat equation) to break down at such scales. The thermal sub-continuum effects are manifested as a temperature jump at the system boundaries and a reduced heat flux across the system. In this work, we reproduce transient and steady-state results of Gray lattice Boltzmann simulations by developing a one-dimensional, transient, modified Fourier-based approach. The … Show more
