In this study, we calculated the temperature profile for a nanoscopic Poiseuille flow system via two methods. The first method involved employing the tools of Molecular dynamics (MD) simulation, and the second method involved solving Navier's equation analytically while the rates of fluid dynamic viscosity and thermal conductivity were calculated through MD. We used a temperature jump model as the boundary condition required for the latter method, which was also calculated through MD. We repeated the calculations for various amounts of wall temperature and fluid-wall interaction strength, and we observed a satisfactory agreement between the results of the two methods.
