Phonon modes change from localized to delocalized with increasing angle. Different phonon modes changing speed of two sides explain the phenomenon. A fundamental basis is provided to study abnormal transport in phononics. article i nfo abstract Article history: Current understanding of thermal rectiﬁcation asserts that the rectiﬁcation ratio (R), which measures the Received 27 November 2015 relative heat ﬂux between two ends of a nanostructure, is determined by its geometric asymmetry. The Accepted 21 March 2016 higher the asymmetry, the higher the R. However, by using nonequilibrium molecular dynamics method Available online 12 April 2016 we have calculated thermal transport in Si nanocones as an example, the results show that such an understanding may be incorrect and R
