dc.descriptionThis paper was presented at the 3rd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2011), which was held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki in Greece. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Italian Union of Thermofluiddynamics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, IPEM, the Process Intensification Network, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Heat Transfer Society, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group, and the Energy Institute.en_US
dc.description.abstractLayering phenomena of carbon dioxide and methane transported through carbon nanotubes are being examined through molecular dynamics. The layering formation is investigated for carbon nanotubes ranging from (6,6) to (20,20) subjected to pressures spanning between 5-20 bar at 300 K. Well defined layers are developed both in the internal and external surface of the nanotubes for all the examined cases. It is also shown that the number of layers along with their absolute strength varies as a function of the nanotube's diameter, carbon dioxide and methane's density and gas-structure interactions. Finally, the diffusion inside the interior of the nanotubes has been examined showing a Fickian diffusion mode.en_US
