Present in a widespread range of industrial and geological applications, phenomena in systems involving fluid confinement in porous solid cannot be represented by conventional models and require adequate methodologies for calculating thermodynamic and transport properties, essentials for the design of processes and solutions. This research proposal aim sat developing methodologies for calculating thermal conductivity in nanoconfined systems and at performing atomistic simulations to evaluate them. As an innovative work, we propose to evaluate the mechanisms of energy transfer, following both equilibrium and non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulation approaches. The obtained results will deepen our understanding of heat exchange at a level where conventional methods are no longer applicable, providing a theoretical cornerstone for the following studies.
