- We comment on the paper by Khare et al. [J. Chem. Phys. 107, 2589 (1997)], which considers simulations of confined fluids under planar shear with and without the application of a thermostat. We suggest an alternative interpretation of some of their results, which leads to the same conclusion that applying a thermostat directly to a confined shearing fluid is not the preferred simulation procedure to follow.
