In this paper, we show numerically that there exist two opposite rectifying effects of heat flux in the one-dimensional two-segment Frenkel-Kontorova chain with certain appropriate parameters. The orientation of the rectifying effects depends on the interfacial coupling strength and the size of the chain under investigation.
