Molecular dynamics simulations and the non-equilibrium direct method are used to predict the thermal conductivity of a Si/Ge superlattice modeled by the Stillinger-Weber potential at a temperature of 300 K. We focus on the methodology of making the thermal conductivity prediction (limited effort has been made to model Si/Ge nanocomposites in the literature) and find that proper selection of the size and composition of the thermal reservoirs is important.
