Nanofuids have been recently studied For e±cient and high impact dielectric and tribological fuids, which possess superb thermal transport properties, compared to conventional fuids or lubricants. The present research theoretica-lly analyzes, through Molecular Dynamic(MD) simulations, the physical perFormance oF hexagonal boron nitride(h-BN) nanosheets reinForced mineral oil(MO). This analysis leads to the prediction oF nanofuids perFormance, uti-lizing the Lennard-Jones potential. The computational results oF viscosity perFormance are benchmarked at various temperature levels and nano²ller concentrations. The theoretical results indicate that the simulations presented can predict the behavior oF nanoreinForced fuids
