The simulations of complex colloidal fluids by Lattice Boltzmann

Event details

I will talk about the simulation studies of complex colloidal fluids such as a binary fluid with colloids and magnetic colloids in a single fluid. All simulations are implemented by Lattice Boltzmann method which has a fully hydrodynamic effect. Motions of colloids which are coupled to the fluid by the Bounce-Back on the Links (BBL) follow molecular dynamics algorithm. I will show the recent results of a binary fluid with colloids and magnetic colloids in a single fluid.

This is a weekly series of informal talks given primarily by members of the soft condensed matter and statistical mechanics groups, but is also open to members of other groups and external visitors. The aim of the series is to promote discussion and learning of various topics at a level suitable to the broad background of the group. Everyone is welcome to attend..
