This article presents a theoretical and numerical study on the heat conduction of gas confined in a nanoscale cube. An effective thermal conductivity model of confined gas using a modified mean free path is proposed for the heat conduction in transition regime inside a closure. Excellent agreement of the present model with the results from our simulations by the method of direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) has been achieved for different boundary conditions of side walls. The temperature jumps and the reduction of local heat flux near the side walls are observed from the DSMC results.
