This software computes thermal conductivities of single-wall carbon nano-tubes (SW-CNT) via NEMD (non-equilibrium molecular dynamics) method. Two versions of the same program are available: a tool version for fast set-up and simulations and a step-by-step tutorial for students. The procedure used to compute the conductivity is outlined in the tutorial version of the program; more details can be found in E. Chiavazzo, P. Asinari, "Enhancing surface heat transfer by carbon nanofins: towards an alternative to nanofluids?" Nanoscale Research Letters 6 (2011) 249. The numerical solution is obtained using the GROningen MAchine for Chemical Simulations (GROMACS). In this program, we use harmonic potential for the phononic thermal transfer (OPLS-AA force field).
