Molecular motion is often at the heart of heat transfer. Molecular dynamic (MD) modelling is becoming a valuable tool in both gaining an understanding of heat transfer processes and in evaluating heat transfer situations. This paper presents some simple models employing MD simulations based on Newtonian mechanics that show potential in the teaching of heat transfer at the conceptual level and that introduce engineers and scientists to the relatively new tool of Molecular Dynamic Simulation.
