Abstract

We present a new direct numerical simulation scheme for hard particle suspensions in a solvent, named smoothed profile (SP) method. In SP method, fixed grid covering the entire domain is used to solve the hydrodynamics of the solvent. Particles with finite volume are traced in Lagrangian manner. The coupling between particles and solvents is efficiently accomplished via "smoothed interface" of the particles. We demonstrate numerical examples including the colloids in Newtonian solvent, and charged colloids in electrolyte solutions.
