ABSTRACT
A new multiscale approach for simulating nanobiological flows uses concurrent coupling of constrained molecular dynamics for long biomolecules with a mesoscopic lattice Boltzmann treatment of solvent hydrodynamics. The approach is based on a simple scheme of space–time information exchange between the atomistic and mesoscopic scales.
