A2: Dynamically consistent coarse-grained models

This project is concerned with the development of dynamically consistent coarse-grained models for soft matter systems, including molecular liquids, polymer-solvent mixtures and polymer blends. We apply statistical mechanics methods to derive dissipative particle dynamics friction functions for coarse-grained bead collisions, the amplitudes and spatial variations of which will be related to the dynamic speed up observed in coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations. The ultimate goal is to arrive at a consistent, coarse-grained modelling of dynamics under equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions.
