Abstract

The Lennard-Jones particles mixture was studied to focus the temperature, structure, packing and transport in the supercooled state. The component seperation and local ordering increases with the decrease in temperature and clusters of small particle size also grows with time and freezing.The convectional model was modified to study the effects by the relaxation of large particles. The local order of the system was dictated by the geometry of dense packing of mixed large and small particles. It was shown that the diffusion of small particles decreases at low temperature as the large particles are frozen.
