Abstract: Non-equilibrium Molecular Dynamics (NEMD) simulations have been created in C++ using Message Passing Interface (MPI) library to calculate the phonon thermal conductivity of bare graphene, aluminum, and graphene-coated aluminum. This study focuses on how graphene can alter the thermal conductivity of graphene-coated aluminum. The effect of length, graphene, and the number of graphene layers are analyzed. Even though electrons are dominant on thermal conductivity of aluminum, the effect of graphene coating can be seen in the results. The results show that the thermal conductivity of aluminum increases by up to 149% by graphene coating. When the number of layers increases to two layers, the thermal conductivity increases by up to 261%. Moreover, the results increase with the length of all models.
