|Abstract:||We simulate DNA suspension microchannel flows using the dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) method. Two developments make this simulation more realistic. One is to improve the dynamic characteristics of a DPD system by modifying the weighting function of the dissipative force and increasing its cutoff radius, so that the Schmidt number can be increased to a practical level. Another is to set up a wormlike chain model in the DPD framework, according to the measured extension properties of a DNA molecule in uniform flows. This chain model is then used to study flows of a DNA suspension through microchannels. Interesting results on the conformation evolution of DNA molecules passing through the microchannels, including periodic contraction-diffusion microchannels, are reported. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.|
