The structural and thermal properties of Ne and Xe gases adsorbed on the outer surface of a large nanotube bundle have been evaluated using computer simulations. The potential energy model and numerical techniques were previously used to study Ar. Heat capacity results for Ne and Xe exhibit peaks associated with reordering and "stripe" melting transitions for these gases.
