Abstract: In this thesis, the Dissipative Particle Dynamics method was employed to study the mixing of both miscible and immiscible fluids at mesoscale. Simulation of domain growth and phase separation in two-dimensional binary immiscible fluids has shown that DPD particle system follows the power law of the growth kinematics of binary immiscible fluids with a good accuracy. The Rayleigh-Taylor instability was also investigated. It has shown that the speed of mixing and the turnover depend strongly on the value of immiscibility factor. The DPD method was also used to simulate the flows of miscible fluid over a straight and square-wave channel. By examining the mixing index, it was confirmed that the square-wave channel can help to promote mixing.
