We investigate the effect of loading rate on drainage in molecularly thin films of a simple fluid made of quasi-spherical molecules (octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane, OMCTS). We find that (i) rapidly confined OMCTS retains its tendency to organize into layers parallel to the confining surfaces, and (ii) flow resistance in such layered films can be described by bulklike viscous forces if one accounts for the existence of one monolayer immobilized on each surfaces. The latter result is fullydoi:10.1103/physreve.78.061501 pmid:19256840 fatcat:4j7osb7f2jgjxb6rloftnv2b4q
