Coarse graining and scaling in dissipative particle dynamics
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2009

Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) is now a well-established method for simulating soft matter systems. However, its applicability was recently questioned because some investigations showed an upper coarse-graining limit that would prevent the applicability of the method to the whole mesoscopic range. This article aims to re-establish DPD as a truly mesoscopic method by analyzing the problems reported by other authors and by presenting a scaling scheme that allows one to apply DPD simulations directly to any desired length scale.
