Colloid package - van der Waals Forces colloid-solvent

Submitted by Lowered on Wed, 06/26/2019 - 10:05

Hello everybody,

in LAMMPS documentation it is recommendet to use colloid and yukawa/colloid for DLVO potential.
I'm trying to use DLVO in LIGGGHTS (CFDEMcoupling) and now I stuck with the equations in colloid.
In LIGGGHTS only colloides are calculated, solvent is done by continuum. Does this mean the equations for colloid-solvent and solvent-solvent are not considered? Or is it computed with information transfered in the coupling?
Is there any hint, documentation or literature?

Thank you.

Did you find the way to implement DLVO on CFDEM?
Could you tell us how to do that?
