Title DL_MESO: highly scalable mesoscale simulations
Abstract DL_MESO is a parallel mesoscale simulation package capable of dissipative particle dynamics and the lattice Boltzmann equation method. It has been developed at Daresbury Laboratory for the United Kingdom Collaborative Computational Project known as CCP5. Capable of addressing industrially relevant tasks, but written to support academic research, it has a wide range of applications and will scale to thousands of processors on high-performance computing platforms yet will run efficiently on smaller commodity clusters and single processor personal computers. This article serves as a guide to a variety of users, describing the functionality, performance and structure of this simulation package. Representative examples highlighting the capabilities of DL_MESO are given for each of the two methodologies available. Future directions for the package are discussed towards the end of the article.
