Abstract

Using large scale molecular dynamics (MD) simulation techniques, two types of fluid-fluid phase changes were investigated. One is a homogeneous nucleation process from supersaturated vapor, in which we compare a Lennard-Jones system and water system. Another is a bubble formation (cavitation) process in stretched liquid, in which we compare one-component and two-component systems.
