In this article, we focus on the effects of wall-colloidal particle interaction intensity on both fluid and colloidal particles density profiles. Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations were used to study a nanofluid confined between two explicit walls. Simulations were conducted keeping each wall at different temperatures by establishing a temperature gradient through a colloidal suspension. All interactions between walls, colloidal particles and fluid particles were explicitly considered in the simulations. We conclude that wall-nanoparticles interactions play a role on the features of both density and temperature profiles of nanofluids under confinement. (C) 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
