Manuscript Title: HYDROLIB: a library for the evaluation of hydrodynamic interactions
in colloidal suspensions. | ||

Authors: K. Hinsen | ||

Program title: HYDROLIB | ||

Catalogue identifier: ADBK_v1_0Distribution format: tar.gz | ||

Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 88(1995)327 | ||

Programming language: Fortran, C. | ||

Computer: DECstation, HP PA-RISC systems, IBM RS/6000, NeXT-Station, Silicon Graphics, Sun-3. | ||

Operating system: Ultrix & OSF/1, HP/UX, AIX, NeXT-Step, IRIX, Sun. | ||

RAM: 380K words | ||

Word size: 32 | ||

Keywords: Solid state physics, Other, Fluid dynamics, Hydrodynamic, Interactions, Colloidal Suspensions, Macromolecules, Low-Reynolds-number flow, Multipole expansion. | ||

Classification: 7.7, 12. | ||

Nature of problem:Friction and mobility matrices for systems of equal spherical particles in colloidal suspensions, assuming low-Reynolds-number flow. | ||

Solution method:Construction of a linear system of equations for the force multipole moments induced on the particles by external forces and flow fields; solution of these equations with standard methods; addition of short- term corrections in pair approximation. | ||

Unusual features:The C preprocessor is used to provide global parameters and conditional compilation for the Fortran code. A set of Unix shell scripts limits recompilation of the source code to a minimum. Pure portable Fortran 77 code can be generated by another shell script. | ||

Running time:6.5 s/configuration for 10 particles using double-precision arithmetic on a DECstation 5000/260. | ||
