Nano Mechanics and Modeling of Phase Transitions of Water


Article Preview

The water molecule, H2O is a very simple and most stable molecule. It displays a discrete but nevertheless exceptional property that has far-reaching consequences, one of them being that without it life would not exist. At ambient conditions, water remains in liquid form, becomes ice below freezing temperatures and turns into vapor form at high temperatures. In this paper, we use molecular dynamics (MD) simulation method to study the hydrodynamic properties of water molecule. The interactions that exist in the water molecule is described using the 3 site transferable inter-molecular potential model. The properties of water molecule that occur at nano level are studied and compared with those at the bulk.
