Abstract

Colloidal dispersions have attracted much attention both from academia and industry due to industrial significance and complex dynamic properties. Accordingly, a variety of attempts have been made to understand the complicated physics of colloidal dispersions. Particle dynamics simulation has been playing an important role in exploring colloidal systems as a strong complement to experimental approaches from which it is hard to get exact microscopic information. Our aim is to provide a well-organized and up-to-date guide to particle dynamics simulation of colloidal dispersions. Among diverse particle dynamics simulation techniques, we focus on Brownian dynamics, Stokesian dynamics, multi-particle collision dynamics, and self-consistent... (More)

Colloidal dispersions have attracted much attention both from academia and industry due to industrial significance and complex dynamic properties. Accordingly, a variety of attempts have been made to understand the complicated physics of colloidal dispersions. Particle dynamics simulation has been playing an important role in exploring colloidal systems as a strong complement to experimental approaches from which it is hard to get exact microscopic information. Our aim is to provide a well-organized and up-to-date guide to particle dynamics simulation of colloidal dispersions. Among diverse particle dynamics simulation techniques, we focus on Brownian dynamics, Stokesian dynamics, multi-particle collision dynamics, and self-consistent particle simulation techniques. First, the concept of the simulation techniques will be described. Then, for each simulation technique, pros and cons are discussed with a broad range of applications, including concentrated hard sphere suspensions and biological systems. It is expected that this article helps to identify and motivate research challenges.
