A Monte Carlo Simulation of Thermal-Driven Fluid: Flux Rate and Density Profile
Physics and Astronomy
Effects of uniform temperature and linear temperature gradient on flow rate and density profile of fluid driven from a source to an open system is studied by a Monte Carlo simulation in three dimensions. The steady-state density profile with uniform temperature differs significantly from that of the temperature gradient at all but high-temperature regimes, where the profile is a linear density gradient; the crossover to linear density gradient of the profile is sensitive to range of temperature variation. The response of the flow rate density to the temperature is nonlinear. Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
