Abstract

In this paper, a two-dimensional Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) technique to simulate the poiseuille flow in a microchannel is developed using an in-house code. The calculated Reynolds number is reduced via adjusting the DPD parameters. The obtained velocity profile is compared with the analytical results and a good agreement is found. The drag force and the drag coefficient on a stationary cylinder exerted by the fluid particles are obtained using the developed DPD code. The calculated drag coefficient exhibits a close match with already published data in the literature.
