Abstract: The flow of complex fluids plays important role in a wide variety of environmental and technical processes and is of fundamental interest. Some examples of complex fluids are polymer blends, fresh concrete, and colloidal suspensions. In this talk I will discuss the computational modeling of such fluid systems using the lattice Boltzmann (LB) method and dissipative particle dynamics (DPD). Results will be presented concerning the phase separation of binary mixtures under shear and the flow of dense suspensions. Some research challenges will also be discussed.
