Temperature Effects on Thermal Conductivity and Viscosity of Aqueous Solutions Boiling and the various heat transfer regimes of coolants such as pure water, let alone solutions that may include salt, polymers or nanoparticles, are a challenging and open research area. This project aims to systematically investigate a range of aqueous solutions at different temperatures and concentrations. Initially, the project will replicate the properties of pure water with the use of Molecular Dynamics-MD and the popular open-source software LAMMPS. The most used as well as recent water models will be identified and compared with experimental data from the literature in an effort to find a model that provides the best accuracy in the properties of interest and at a range of temperatures from room up and up to the boiling point. Then, heat and flow properties of aqueous solutions that contain ions, polymers, nanoparticles or a combination of them will be studied aiming to characterise them in a range of temperatures and concentrations.
