The DL_MESO Mesoscale Simulation Package

Michael Seaton
CSE Department, STFC Daresbury Laboratory

DL_MESO is a general purpose mesoscale simulation package developed by Michael Seaton for CCP5 under a grant provided by EPSRC. It is written in Fortran90 and C++ and supports both Lattice Boltzmann Equation (LBE) and Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD) methods. It is supplied with its own Java-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) and is capable of both serial and parallel execution.

DL_MESO is described in the DL_MESO User Manual (PDF): the current version is DL_MESO 2.4.

The LBE code includes the following features:

The DPD code includes the following features:

Dissipative Particle Dynamics simulation of spontaneous formation of amphiphilic vesicle: formed vesicle (left) and cross-section with encapsulated water (right)

DL_MESO is supplied to individuals under an academic licence, which is free of cost to academic scientists pursuing scientific research of a non-commercial nature. Please see the web page Registering for the DL_MESO Package for instructions. Commercial organisations interested in acquiring the package should approach Dr. M. A. Seaton at Daresbury Laboratory in the first instance. Daresbury Laboratory is the sole centre for distribution of the package.

The current version of DL_MESO incorporates fixes for any bugs which have subsequently been discovered since its original release. Registered users with older versions are strongly advised to check the INFOMAIL e-mail announcements, which give details for bug fixes and minor changes to source codes.
