Abstract

The aim of this work is to analyze the shape dependence of the effective thermal conductivity of nanowires, based on the model of phonon hydrodynamics. In particular, we consider elliptical and rectangular nanowires, and we compare their respective thermal conductivities with those of circular nanowires and of wide thin plates. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.
