The process of Couette flow of a hydrocarbon liquid in the slit pores has been simulated and the dynamics of the liquid molecules ordering depending on the liquid density and the slit size has been investigated by means of molecular dynamics. Statistical analysis of the resulting regions of ordered molecules of the hydrocarbon fluid has indicates that the wall material and the liquid viscosity affect the size of such regions.
